A great start to the year with members of the community joining the council to help plant 300 beech and cherry trees at Willow Wood.
On Monday, January 3, more than 100 people attended an Amersham Town Council community tree planting event to commemorate the completion of the Willow Wood legacy project.
The town council has worked with schoolchildren, community groups, Amersham in Bloom Volunteers, and members of the community to plant trees in Willow Wood.
The Queen’s Green Canopy tree planting campaign to ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee’ to honour Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee included the community plant. This initiative, which began in 2012 to commemorate the Queen’s 60th anniversary.
The Town Council started the journey 10 years ago. They accomplished this initiative, which resulted in the planting of 7500 trees, a legacy that will benefit future generations, with the participation of numerous school students, community organisations, and members of the public.
The council would like to thank Old Amersham Revitalisation Group for funding the trees.
