The Perrott Tree

Perrott Tree
Perrott Tree 100 Year Commemoration

Society members and members of the Perrott family participated in a commemoration ceremony marking 100 years since the planting of the Perrott tree, that is now outside the Hastings office of the Mornington Peninsula Shire.

The tree was planted by Alice Maud Mary Perrott, a great-grandmother of Shirley Davies, who was then Vice President of the Society.

The tree at that time was outside the Perrott Butcher's shop.
