As a child, she was evacuated to Cragend Farm near Cragside, during World War Two and last weekend she returned to plant the sapling dedicated to her late husband, David.

Anthea, well known for her role as a fleece judge at local country shows, has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s but she was fit and well to walk to the planting site with her family.

It was all part of Cragend Farm’s new project for 2021 to plant 10 trees of 10 varieties to commemorate 10 years of its journey to restore the area for future generations.

Lou Renwick of Cragend Farm said: “We have invested in the trees, their plant pots, which will be their homes until they are planted out, and their species passports.”
