On 6th April 2013 Scorton Parish Council and 1st Brompton on Swale Scout Group planted a horse chestnut tree to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

This species was chosen to ensure a good supply of conkers for children of the North Yorkshire village for years to come. 1st Brompton Scout Group kindly donated some daffodils which were planted around the base of the tree.

Councillors Jenny Harper, Ian Threlfall, Ian Robinson and Linda Hull took part in the planting, along with Scout leader Lesley Gray and Scouts Jacob and Joshua Dean, Harold and Arthur Raven and Archie Strafford.
