Cricket club hosts community tree planting event
Easingwold Cricket Club are hosting an event in support of national tree week (27 November to 5 December).
With The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Green Canopy project and The Woodland Trust, the club is planting a specimen tree and 120 hedgerow saplings to improve biodiversity, improve the community’s health and wellbeing and help tackle climate change.
Easingwold Community Primary School children are helping with the project.
Ian Connell, chairman at Easingwold Cricket Club said: “We are delighted to be supporting The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee campaign, working with The Woodland Trust, and partnering with Easingwold Community Primary School.
“Our contribution may be modest but will contribute to a healthier environment whilst encouraging wildlife to prosper.”
On Wednesday 17 November at 1.30pm, the club invites you to join them, the Woodland Trust, Easingwold Community Primary School, the Women’s Institute and the Lord-Lieutenant of North Yorkshire Jo Ropner, for a tree talk, tree planting demonstration and ceremonial tree planting.
All are welcome on the cricket field.
