Our annual tree planting event is coming up, and following feedback from our Summer Open Day, we are creating a memorial garden to plant trees for loved ones. The tree plant will be on Sunday 1st December from 10am-1pm. This is a free event and everyone is welcome to join us, with under-16s accompanied by an adult. We provide all the tools needed as well as refreshments, just come dressed for muddy conditions. You can find us at the front edge of our site, alongside Dane Valley Road.
We intend to plant 420 blossoming and year-round colour trees such as wild cherry, silver birch and dogwood, generously provided to us by the Woodland Trust. We would be very pleased to welcome you to come and plant a lasting memory for a loved one that will one day benefit our future generations. You can even bring along and tie ribbons and bows to branches, to identify your tree throughout the year.
We will also be having a task day dedicated to preparing the site on Sunday 24th November between 10am-1pm. Again, help is welcomed to clear space for these trees. We will provide all the tools needed and a hot cup of tea or coffee to all our hard workers.
A council mini-digger will be undertaking some initial clearance work for us, on the front edge of our site facing the local shops, and this will take place during the week commencing Monday 18 November 2013 (weather permitting)
