The life of Prince Philip is being fondly remembered at a village on the outskirts of Norwich thanks to a green-friendly gesture.
A commemorative fig tree and plaque was unveiled at The Walled Garden, in Little Plumstead, on Saturday in honour of the late Duke of Edinburgh who died in April.
County councillor Ian Mackie, who dedicated and planted the tree to Prince Philip, said: "The fig tree is bound in ancient Greek mythology and is symbolic of longevity.
"It’s a special tree for a special person."
Prince Philip was the longest-serving consort in British history who died at the age of 99.
A tree had previously been planted and dedicated by Mr Mackie to celebrate the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's 70th wedding anniversary in Fitzmaurice Park in November 2017.
The Walled Garden Community shop and café in Little Plumstead is a community owned society which opened in October 2020.
