CHERRY AND MAPLE TREES

Now a mature tree around which meetings and ceremonies frequently take place.

On 6 August 1967, the anniversary of the dropping of the first atomic bomb, a cherry tree was planted by the mayor of Camden in memory of the victims of Hiroshima. On each anniversary meetings are held to remember the victims of the two atomic bombs dropped on Japan.

In 1986 to mark the United Nations International Year of Peace, a field maple was planted by the League of Jewish Women.
