Siddick Woodland

[T]he revamp of Siddick Woodland continues on Tuesday 3 April with a volunteer planting day from 11am to 1pm.

Volunteers will assist with the planting of a variety of new shrubs on the site, including holly, hazel, crab apple and elder. The shrubs will contribute to the biodiversity of the woodland as well as complementing the fifty new trees that were planted on the site back in February.

Equipment will be supplied but participants are advised to wear clothing and footwear suitable for working outdoors.
