End of Season at Booth Street
Our last tree planting event of the season was one of our most successful in terms of the impact on an Inner City park and the enthusiasm of the schoolchildren. Three enthusiastic schools joined us at our final planting, one arriving by minibus.
It was touch and go as to whether James Watt Primary would make the event as they were waiting for a visit from OFSTED, but luckily it didn't materialise on our planting day so with a sigh of relief, 10 pupils walked the half a mile to the planting site. Holyhead School had already stepped into the breech with 18 of their pupils, and at the last minute Birchfield Community School managed to arrange transport to bring 10 pupils along to help with what turned out to be a challenging site. This park covers previously demolished properties and the bricks from most of these were in evidence just below the surface!

We will be starting tree planting again in National Tree Planting Week in December 2012, so please do get in touch if you would like to be involved in any way.
This planting was funded by the Government's tree planting campaign.
