We won! Scotland’s Tree of the Year

In my last post, I wrote about Glasgow Women’s Library nominating the Suffragette Oak, which was planted in 1918 to commemorate some women getting the vote, as Scotland’s Tree of the Year. Well, we won! At a reception at the Scottish Parliament last night we were presented with a trophy, certificate and banner.

Here’s the tree and its banner:

And here we are winning at the parliament!

Now we go on to compete to be European Tree of the Year next year. I might be asking for your votes again – thanks to anyone who voted for us this time!

  1. Hi Annabel – how amazing and so well done .. and yes I did vote … and at some stage may mention your Suffragette Oak … but I’ll try and remember to let you know – when etc … may not be til next year …

    That’s great – so pleased for you … and the visit to the Scottish Parliament must have been so interesting … the building is certainly worth vetting out (by me) at some stage – next century probably!!

    Cheers and all the best with the European entry … Hilary


I'd love to hear what you think!
