A tree has been planted in dedication to a 'tireless' town councillor who died in February.
Sue Barnard passed away on Tuesday, February 2, at the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston, eight years after being given 12 months to live after battling cancer.
On May 14, a tree planting took place in Gunton Woods and was arranged by Gunton Woodland Community Project, Gunton Residents' Association, Gunton Pond Group and the Friends of Dip Farm Group.
A spokesman for Gunton Residents' Association said: "Sue Barnard passed away earlier this year in February.
"She worked tirelessly in the community and in particular with the Gunton Woodland Community Project, Gunton Residents' Association, Gunton Pond Group and The Friends of Dip Farm Group.
"Members from these groups met together in Gunton Woods to remember Sue and commemorate her passing by planting an oak tree in her memory."
