THE WOODLAND TRUST – TREE PLANTING

A pack of 105 trees and hedging were provided to the Parish Council. These were planted around the perimeter of the playing field.The pack of trees comprise a mix of hawthorn, blackthorn, silver birch, hazel, common oak and rowan. With so much in the news recently you must have been moved by the voices of young people calling for us to protect the future of the planet. The planting of trees is only a small contribution and the Parish Council and Village Society are looking at other ways to support our local environment to help create a lasting legacy for future generations.
