Yesterday evening representatives of the churches and members of the community in Tain planted trees in memory of those who planted the original row of trees in Manse Street, to mark the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III.
The following readings from Scripture were read:
Lord Lieutenant Joanie Whiteford

Job 14:7 NKJV
For there is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it will sprout again,
And that its tender shoots will not cease.
Jeremiah 29:7 NKJV
And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.

2Kings 11:12 NKJV
And he brought out the king’s son, put the crown on him, and gave him the Testimony; they made him king and anointed him, and they clapped their hands and said, “Long live the king!“

Given the weather, there was no need to water the trees once they had been planted:-)
