Are you free on Sunday 16th May to help us with another tree project?

Are you free on Sunday 16th May to help us with another tree project?

The plastic guards on the trees in the Diamond Wood need removing. We've been working on this over the winter but it's a big job! Many hands make light work so we're organising a "big push" on Sunday 16th May between 2pm and 4pm.

If you can help, please meet us in the Diamond Wood car park on Pasture Lane at 2pm on Sunday. You'll need to wear good gardening gloves, sturdy footwear, and trousers are recommended due to brambles. Please bring safety goggles if you can and something to cut the plastic e.g. secateurs or penknife. Whilst the actual cutting of the plastic isn't suitable for children, we will need help putting the plastic guards into builders bags/tarpaulins, pulling them back to the skip, and collecting the wooden stakes - so there's plenty for everyone to do!

Hope to see you there. » Less
