Message from Parish Councillor Simon Browne
"For anybody interested, the Henbury Parish Council Environmental Project will again be in action restoring our native hedgerows on Sat March 7th on Henbury farmland.
In 10 years we've planted over 3km of new hedgerow and over 2000 trees in our efforts to 're-green' the countryside, improve biodiversity, landscape and of course carbon-capture.
It's a family-friendly activity, with our 'planters' spanning an age range of over 80 years, and refreshments very kindly provided by our host! It's a good social and a great way to meet some like-minded people from all walks of life. We could do with upping volunteer numbers again and already have some new helpers signed up for this year.
Please let me know if you'd be interested in joining us — for as long as suits. A spade and some gardening gloves would be useful but not essential."
