Tree plant­ing needs helpers

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Vil­lagers are be­ing en­cour­aged to join a com­mu­nity tree plant­ing day to re­claim a for­mer sand pit.

The land off Gra­nary Court Road, near Brabourne Lees and Smeeth, is part of a com­mu­nity wood­land project where var­i­ous species are be­ing planted to boost wildlife.

Or­gan­iser Chris Ramp­ton said the Wood­land Trust has do­nated 400 trees ready to be planted, and said many hands will make light work.

It fol­lows a sim­i­lar event last year, and Mr Ramp­ton hopes to make it a reg­u­lar an­nual event to al­low peo­ple to get in­volved and en­joy the great out­doors.

The tree plant­ing takes place on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 25 from 10.30am to 2pm.
