Hedge Planting 2018

After having to cancel the first planned hedge-planting day this year due to poor weather, Parish Councillor Simon Browne was delighted to tell us that the second date (last Saturday) was a great success!

After a monumental day's effort, volunteers completed all 300m. That's more than 1200 hedge plants in — of which two thirds are hawthorn, and the remainder a mixture of hazel, blackthorn, field maple, guelder rose, alder buckthorn and dog rose.

In a few years' time this will become a great wildlife hedge, supporting all manner of fauna (and flora) and linking up ponds and woodlands across the farmland near Redesmere.

Simon offered grateful thanks to all the volunteers, (who were treated to sausage butties), plus Henbury Parish Council for the funding and the Capesthorne estate for their financial contribution.

Since the Parish Council started the project, 3.3km (just over 2 miles, if you prefer) of new hedgerows have been planted in Henbury, and more than 2000 trees. Quite an achievement, and only possible with all the volunteer effort.
