We had a stall at the Countryside Show at Beacon Hill explaining to visitors all about the work we do at Coleorton Wood and New Lount Nature Reserve - hopefully we will recruit new members as a result?!.... Youngsters especially had a great time putting together an 'insect hotel' at the show - which we have now rebuilt and installed at Coleorton Wood. Many thanks to everyone who contributed and helped.
The overwhelmingly popular Free Tree Scheme is back again and you can help to continue the success of the scheme by supporting it this year. The scheme has already seen thousands of trees planted across the district and the District Council is once again teaming up with The National Forest Company to make our district even greener.
There are four trees to choose from: Holly; Dogwood; Field Maple; Elder and again this year we have the Hedge Fund with residents able to order up to 30 metres of hedging.
You can order online at: www.nwleics.gov.uk/ freetreescheme2016
Trees will be available for collection on Sunday 20 November. Place your order now to receive your free trees. The deadline for submission is Monday 24 October.
