Tree planting weeks – 4th to 15th March
It’s tree planting season again! Between 4th and 15th March we will be welcoming schools, community groups, and corporate volunteers to Smithills to help us get to our target of 28,000 trees this season. Any volunteers who want to help across this time, please let me know – this will involve helping us set up, assisting the groups, and helping us clear up at the end of the session.
