Great Yorkshire Show Woodland Trust Stand
Every year the Woodland Trust set up a stand at the Great Yorkshire Show, they are based in the Woodland Area near the blue gate. This year everyone who signed up for communications from us on an expression of interest form received a free sapling and a sample box of Yorkshire Tea. As always the Woodland Trust tent was busy, in fact so busy at times there were queues to get in the tent.
The tent had information on the Woodland Trust, where the public could find out more information on us and even sign up for membership on the day, details on the creation of the Northern Forest and expression of interest forms specifically for that and information on tree packs that the Woodland Trust give out to charities / sell to landowners.
On top of having all of these quality conversations with people who actively sought us out, staff and volunteers chatted to lots of people who didn’t want anything from us; they were already members or they had been by the year before – and just wanted to say hi and tell us how great their trees were doing a year on!
