Nottingham Woodcraft Folk help plant a Covid-19 memorial woodland

Saturday, 2 January 2021

On Saturday 5th December, as part of National Tree Planting Week, the Nottingham Woodcraft Folk group teamed up with Carlton Hill Community Action Group to help plant a memorial woodland for the people of Gedling Borough who have lost their lives to Covid-19. 

The Elfins group planted 15 native British saplings that had been donated by the Woodland Trust. It was a sunny but cold day, and hot chocolate and biscuits helped keep spirits up. The children did brilliantly to maintain social distancing and were awarded their Ecologist Badge at the end of the day.
