Tree-mendous effort goes into town community campaign
3:10pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
TREES have been planted across Bromsgrove as part of a community campaign.
Staff at Bromsgrove District Housing Trust (bdht) went out to three locations, Charford, Catshill and Alvechurch, with Bromsgrove District Council’s tree officer Gavin Boyes.
A mixture of oak and cherry trees, designed to enhance the landscape and environment in each area, were planted.
The tree planting was organised as part of bdht’s annual community day, when staff are given time off from normal work duties to participate in activities that can benefit the local community.
Alan Williams, bdht’s community environmental manager, said: “The oak and cherry trees that were chosen are already 10 to 15 feet tall and have made an immediate difference to the landscape in each area.
“Everyone worked really hard and did an excellent job.”
Mike Brown, bdht chief executive, added: “Once all staff have taken their community day it will equate to around 435 hours of community involvement, which is fantastic.”
