GUIDES HELP PLANT SAPLINGS TO CREATE SMALL WOODLAND

Crewkerne District Guides have helped to plant 105 saplings, to create a small woodland on council owned land near St Bartholomew’s School. The young trees of a variety of species from rowan, silver birch, wild cherry to common oak, field maple and grey willow were donated by the Woodland Trust from their Working Wood pack. Crewkerne Town Council agreed that the little used grass triangle of land at Happy Valley would be the ideal location and the Town Council grounds team met up with the Guides and volunteers from Crewkerne in Bloom on Saturday morning, to oversee the planting.

A spokesperson for Crewkerne Town Council said: “There was an amazing turnout of Guides, despite the pouring rain, who along with their parents got involved, digging holes and planting the trees under the guidance of our grounds staff Jason Fontana and Lewis Warren.” The planting took just under an hour, impressing the Mayor of Crewkerne, Councillor Kathy Head who said: “It just shows how much can be achieved when a group of people work together.” The newly planted area will continue to be managed by Crewkerne Town Council.
