The gathering of the clans

On a foul, sodden Sunday at the end of November we held the first of our regular Tree Warden gatherings that we announced in October. We were absolutely delighted to welcome 38 people who are either already actively involved or who are interested in volunteering their time and support.

The handsome upstairs function room at The Talbot was soon full of animated talk and friendly catching up and as you can see, the windows steamed up such was the heat of the exchange!

Anthony and Dom gave brief but important presentations about our work and the need to disseminate information about what we do with the aim of involving a greater number of people to help.

This planting season, with the help of a very significant and generous donation from a local resident, we will be planting in excess of 30 new street trees in and around the conservation area. That's an enormous increase in our workload as an entirely volunteer led group, so it's imperative that we get more of you on board. We have plans and projects that we would like to develop and we can only do it with your help!

See the Contacts tab above if you'd like to get involved. We'd love to hear from you.
