Report:  Although the weather was unsettled weather and there was a heavy rain storm, about 15 people spent 75 minutes wandering around the Common examining some of its interesting trees, including  recently planted Mongolian lime (Tilia mongolica), a mature but unidentified elm (Ulmus), the hybrid between evergreen (Quercus ilex) and Turkey (Q. cerris) oaks, and small-leaved lime (Tilia cordata).
