FOX­TON’S IN THE BAG

Canal Boat - - News -

A project to cre­ate a new na­ture re­serve and orchard at Fox­ton Locks has been given a £12,000 fund­ing boost thanks to Tesco’s Bags of Help cam­paign, which uses the pro­ceeds from the sale of car­rier bags for green spa­ces in com­mu­ni­ties. Once the site is cleared of bram­bles and over­grown bushes, vol­un­teers work­ing with the Canal & River Trust plan to con­struct a new pond-dip­ping plat­form, in­stall benches, and work with the Ap­ple As­so­ci­a­tion to plant native ap­ple trees.
