30 new trees planted at North Lake, South Hill Park

1st February 2016 Posted in Council News

Beech, oak, maple and alder trees will be enjoyed for generations to come thanks to two Old Bracknell Ward Councillors.

Cllrs Iain McCracken and Peter Heydon used a portion of their Bracknell Forest Council Members’ Initiative Fund to have 30 trees planted in the North Lake area of South Hill Park, managed by Bracknell Town Council.

Last Thursday (28th January), the Councillors joined Bracknell Town Council’s Recreational Facilities Manager Allan Moffat and South Hill Park Grounds Manager Kath Moss, to help plant some of the trees.

Cllr Heydon said: “It is important to keep our open areas looking beautiful and these new additions to South Hill Park will certainly enhance its appeal to residents and visitors alike.”

Cllr McCracken added: “It was fantastic to go down to South Hill Park and get hands on by helping to plant the trees ourselves alongside Kath and Allan and all of the dedicated staff at the park.”

The 30 native British trees replace ten trees that had to be removed last year.
