To mark the birth of HRH Prince George, GOLO provided funding for a 'Worplesdon' tree (Liquidambar styraciflua) and plaque which was planted in the grounds of Broadwater School by pupils (December 2013). The tree variety was chosen for being long-lived, strikingly beautiful with its maple-like leaves, and also because it was grown by Merrist Wood in Worplesdon, after which it is named.
