Tree marks special anniversary at Worthing’s hidden gem gardens!
The Mayor of Worthing has commemorated a remarkable man who left an amazing legacy to the people of Worthing.
Councillor Alex Harman paid a fitting tribute by planting a tree at the town’s magnificent Highdown Gardens to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Sir Frederick Stern, the pioneering horticulturalist who created them.
Members of the Friends of Highdown – volunteers who help to maintain the stunning gardens – joined the Mayor for the tree-planting ceremony along with other representatives from the Council.
The guests were also treated to a preview of scenes from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream by the Rainbow Theatre company, which today (Tuesday 11th July 2017) starts six days of open-air public performances of the popular play at the gardens.
