Great Yorkshire Show 2019
Another summer and another Great Yorkshire Show success. This year we gave out 2750 tree saplings in exchange for contact details, in comparison to last year when we handed out 1500 and 1000 the year before! The MDO team recruited 32 new members and we also had over 30 landowner enquiries for more tree and hedgerows over the three days. It was also nice to strike up conversations with people who have had trees from us before and are keen to tell us how their saplings are doing – all good for longer term engagement . Thanks to all our staff and 17 volunteers who helped ensure the show ran smoothly.
