Don’t dig near tree

PLEASE could all geocaching enthusiasts avoid digging in or under The Midsummer’s Tree at Broadwater.

The poor tree at Grove Lodge Roundabout needs all the help and protection it can get as it is said to be about 300 years old.

If those hunting the nearby cache would decrypt and follow the simple instructions and hints given on the website, they will easily find its correct location and avoid further damage to this ancient tree which is the subject of so much local ancient folklore.

This will enable others to enjoy the stories surrounding this old tree for many years to come.
