TREE CHARTER DAY
The last Saturday of November each year is Tree Charter Day – a day for the whole of UK society to unite in celebrating the value and importance of trees and woods to people. It also marks the start of National Tree Week each year.
In 2021 this will be held on Saturday 27th November 2021.
The plan for the day is as follows:
10.30am - Southons Field: Residents are invited to join the Parish Council in planting both the Roots of Remembrance tree for those who lost their lives or have been affected by Covid and the Duke of Edinburgh Memorial tree. Reverend Nicky Harvey will say a few words of remembrance along with Parish Councillors. One of these trees will form part of the Queen’s Green Canopy to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations and these will be mapped on the The Queen’s Green Canopy (queensgreencanopy.org)
We also plan to plant saplings from the Woodland Trust and we need your help on the same day at:
•12pm - Highwood Green
•1pm - The Parsonage
•2pm - Windsor Meadows
•3pm - Appledown Grange
If you are interested in helping on the day with planting trees please either email Rachel at [email protected] or just come along. Don't forget to bring along a spade and some gloves!
