Trees for New Mills

A JOINT PROJECT BETWEEN TRANSITION NEW MILLS AND THORNSETT PRIMARY SCHOOL

Transition New Mills have been awarded a free pack of 420 trees by the Woodland Trust.

The trees will be planted mainly on the Derby Road Playing Field site. There should also be some trees left which could be offered to local residents who have space to plant one or two.

Planting will take place on Sunday 15th November at 10.00am for Transition New Mills members and the local community and on Monday afternoon 16th November for Thornsett School.

The trees in the pack are oak, hawthorn, rowan, blackthorn, silver birch and hazel. These species have been selected by the Woodland Trust to provide a range of food sources and habitats in order to increase biodiversity.

Volunteers are needed for Sunday 15th November for a variety of tasks including tree planting, providing refreshments, lending spades (especially tree spears) and donating cakes.

Please put the date in your diaries and let Chris, Jane or Jill know if you can help.
