Provisional dates were set for our first working parties at a very successful planning meeting on 4 February. They are as follows:
- Sunday 16 March: site preparation
- Saturday 22 March: first planting day?
- Saturday 29 March: follow-up
We are hoping to have at least a dozen volunteers at these sessions when it should be possible to plant some trees- so please turn up if you can! Facilities should be available in the village hall. Further plantings of rare trees will be made of the rarer trees next winter.
A planting scheme has been prepared: these poles represent the likely future heights and placement of the trees. A plan will appear on this site soon.
A gate which will allow vehicles to access the site is also planned for Tagg Lane and grant applications are being invesitgated.
