Enriching Henbury's Landscape & Habitats

Since 2009 our Parish Tree Warden , Simon Browne, and his team of volunteers have planted 2.7km of new hedgerow and almost 2300 trees within the Parish. Funding has come primarily from Henbury Parish Council but also from local landowners. More than 50 volunteers have given an estimated 750 hours of their time to this magnificent project which is enriching the landscape and natural habitats of the Parish for future generations. Do please take at a look at the details of this project and Simon's 2016 report here and keep an eye on Henbury Online for details of this year's planting programme due in early March. If you would like to join his volunteer team he'll be delighted to hear from you at sbrowne@tesco.net
