The Mayor of Barnet continued a ceremonial tradition by planting a tree in a Hendon park to mark the end of his term.

Melvin Cohen became the latest in a line of borough mayors to place his London plane tree in a row of trees at Sunny Hill Park.

The Golders Green councillor will come to the end of his second term as mayor on June 2, having previously held the role in 2003.

He said: “I count myself extremely honoured to have held the role of Barnet’s Mayor twice now.

“During this year I feel privileged to have met some of the many interesting people who go towards making Barnet the exciting and varied place it is to live.”
