Volunteers Required – Tree & Hedgerow Initiative Group

Babergh Distict Council has commenced an initiative to offer Parish Councils free tree and hedgerow planting, through which parishes can improve their local biodiversity and ecosystems.

To implement the initiative, the Parish Council has created a Working Group to identify locations in the parish that could be suitable for new tree and hedgerow planting. Currently the Group consists of Cllrs Jonathan Ewbank and Ian Bartlett, who are keen that a local landowner and two members of the public should join them to assist with finding sites and to represent the community.

If this initiative is of any interest to you and you think you could spare a few hours per month to help as a member of the Tree & Hedgerow Initative Group, please contact the Parish Clerk at clerk@longmelford-pc.gov.uk, or by phone on Tel. 01787 378084.
