Join local tree-planting events
Volunteers are needed to help plant saplings around Colliers Wood during another series of tree planting events.
The Community Gardening Project of Colliers Wood Residents Association have been donated the mixture of hawthorn, hazel, rowan, silver birch, wild cherry and dogwood by the Woodland Trust.
Volunteers, including children from Singlegate School have already planted 150 saplings in the recreation ground, as well as about 40 saplings and more than 100 daffodils in the alleyway between Devonshire Road and Myrna Close.
Permission has been granted to plant them on several sites in Colliers Wood, including Wandle Park, the recreation ground, the alley to Myrna Close, the nature reserve, Pocket Park, around the bus stop opposite the library and at the back of the community centre.
Organisers are looking for volunteers to help them plant more saplings on
Saturday (November 19th) from 10am to around 12 noon. They will be planting around the bus stop in the High Street between Byegrove Road and Tesco Express. They'll be joined by 16 volunteers from the Baptist Church in Queens Road.
The project does have a wheelbarrow and tools but more barrows, spades and shovels would be welcome. Refreshments will be provided around 11.30am.
Monday (November 21): Around the car park at the Colliers Wood Community Centre, 66-72 in the High Street with volunteers from the Challenge Network.
Sunday November 27: Myrna Close Nature Park.
