Still Branching Out!

Back in December we told you about the initiative from the Woodland Trust to plant more trees around the country, and in our area four of our membership braved the cold conditions to start that process locally.

Not satisfied with that, however, they were out again recently for a second tree planting session! It was a morning of sunshine and laughs and the occasional stone/ rock (!), which are merely an occupational hazard.

It is hoped that in years to come future generations will be able to enjoy the fruits of this labour.

Branching out with the Woodlands Trust

Four “hardy” Rotary Community Committee members braved the cold weather this week to plant Rowan trees as part of the Rotary/ Woodland Trust initiative to plant a tree for every Rotary member …. half have been done for Swanage so far…. !

Grateful thanks go to Rotarian Dai Hounsell for coordinating the work with the The Woodland Trust and to Swanage Town Council for their support of the initiative.

Pictured, obviously working hard (!), are Rotarians Peter Davies, Dai Hounsell, Sarah Randall and Maggie Hardy.
