Spent a very pleasant hour recently with a group of volunteers planting trees on Ashton Heath. I am told by Dave McKendrick, Chief Organiser of the event, that the trees planted are hedgerow and they are being planted to hide an unsightly fence as well as improve the local environment. It was great to see so many people out and about improving the environment.
Readers may not be aware that there is a local residents group that has done a lot of work in the past few years to improve Ashton Heath. If you want to get involved you can log on to www.ashtonheath.org.uk and I am sure they will find something for you to do.
