Children and community-minded
parishioners have come together to create a woodland in Bures.
It was grandparents day at the
school on the Friday of the tree planting, with the school arranging
for all the new admissions to come and plant a tree.
This will enable the children to watch grow during their time
at the school and beyond.
Katharine King, from the conservation
group Bures Transition, said the group was planning to plant 420
new trees on village land at the end of Claypits Avenue and Tawneys
The one-and-a-half acre site, previously
a crop field, was gifted to the village group by landowner Geoffrey
Probert and has been prepared for planting by the Farm Manager,
Dennis Ambrose.Katherine King said: "The creation of a community
woodland and orchard is finally under way and it is great to see
lots of people involved with the project."
Last Friday, 25 reception children
visited the site to plant their own ash, birch, rowan, cherry,
oak or fruit tree.
