Tree planting event in Jarrow.
Hi all, heres a great chance to help out in our local area and be part of what this area of Jarra will look like in the future.

Heres the details-

"The council’s Greenspace Team is looking for people to join them at their upcoming tree planting event on Saturday 16th March starting at 10:30am. Meet on Church Bank opposite St Paul’s Church, Jarrow. All are welcome and booking is not necessary, just turn up on the day. Please come prepared - a coat, warm clothes, a pair of boots or wellies and possibly a flask of tea are recommended. All tools and equipment will be provided. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.The trees have been supplied free of charge by the Woodland Trust as part of the charity’s Jubilee Woods project, marking Her Majesty The Queen’s historic Diamond Jubilee by planting 6 million trees across the country. IKEA and its customers have sponsored the tree pack we have received through the ‘pledge a tree’ scheme at till points.

The site where they are to be planted is an area of green space tucked away in the heart of Jarrow. The river Don runs through the site and is surrounded by a combination of meadow, undulating hills, mature tree belts and open green space. This little oasis is also the location of the council’s newly created Jubilee Wood. The trees supplied by the Woodland Trust will help towards the goal of enriching the site and making it a great place for wildlife and people."

Theres 420 sapplings/young trees to plant, so the more folk attending the better.
Fantastic thread. Can someone keep this thread to the top until further notice.

Thanks Admin.
