The olive tree, a symbol of peace, was donated for the local community as part of the Centenary Commemoration of the outbreak of World War One.An exile in a weary land, My soul sighs for release, It wanders in war's wilderness, And cries for Peace - for Peace. This is from 'A Song of the Desert' , written by Geoffrey Anketell Studdert Kennedy MC (Known more commonly as 'Woodbine Willie' ). Written from the Hindenburg Line 1918 Forces chaplain and vicar of St Pauls in Worcester. Jesus said 'Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you, I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. John 14
