Extra trees for Welsh House Farm Estate

Brrr.... Cold doesn't even describe the conditions at Welsh House Farm today but the gloriously blue skies made it pleasant for our tree planting event with Welsh House Farm Community School. Members of the school Gardening Club helped plant a variety of trees including Limes and Wild Cherry- 10 in all.

The planting area is flanked by tower blocks and we had received a special request to 'green up' this open area so Michael Tawe, the local Community Worker, had spread the word and several local residents also turned up to help.

If you look at all the lovely photographs we took today, you would get no sense of how cold it really was!

 

Our admiration goes to the school who have their own stock of spare hats and gloves for outdoor events, which meant that their pupils never once complained of the cold....unlike the adults!
