Longstanding Henburyites will remember that rainy Sunday in March 1999 when thirty or more local residents turned out to plant 1500 typical Cheshire tree saplings around the Church Lane, Pepper Street and Chelford Road sides of the new Millennium Green.
Twenty four years later it's amazing how well they have grown to provide a wonderful forest girdle around three sides of the Green.
And this year we shall be planting 400 more elder, rowan, blackthorn, hazel and crab apple saplings, (the ones in the photo) around the fourth side to complete that arboreal girdle as the next 24 years go by.
So on Saturday March 18th 2023 at 10 am come rain or shine why not bring the family and join us on Henbury Millennium Green to plant some trees. Every time you come back you'll be able to see how well they are growing ,helping the campaign against climate change.
If you can, please bring along a spade ,and gardening gloves are a good idea too.
We look forward to welcoming you.
