Tree Planting Day - 11th February 2017

Thank you very much to all who gave their time to plant trees on our first event in November. Helpers succeeded in planting 675 trees and shrubs out of the 1500 we have for this season. Following on from this, a second day has been arranged on 11th February and we are hoping that people can give up an hour or so to help.

It will involve digging holes, planting trees, laying tree mats and inserting stakes and protective tubes. If you are not good at digging holes, you could be involved in the stakes and accessories.

Please bring your spade, warm clothing, suitable wellies or boots, and lots of enthusiasm.

Children are very welcome but must be accompanied by an adult to safeguard their toes! The Growing Plot will provide free hot drinks.

Please contact the Parish Clerk by phone (01522 753398) or email ( to say what time you can help.
