Volunteer Events

Trees for Congleton group will be starting up soon and will be appealing for Volunteers. They also need new sites for planting. Contact Patti / Ruth. The tree planting season is getting shorter and shorter, with bad weather (mid-nov to mid-March). We are waiting to see what will happen with the Queen’s Canopy.

Princes Trust is looking for projects they can assist with, might be worth contacting them.
