Tree planting on Wednesday 27th November

We had a great afternoon on Wednesday with some students of Field Lane Primary School Rastrick and the Rotarian's of the upper Valley, ourselves and Robin from Calderdale Countryside Dept, and managed to plant around 200 trees which were donated by the Forestry Commission to make a hedgerow along one of the hay meadows. The children were a credit to the staff and school being polite and hard working and we hope you enjoyed the outing. And the adults weren't too bad either MANY THANKS TO ALL .yours Graham                      Pic's below

You looked to have a brilliant time and they obviously enjoyed themselves.
Thank you Field Lane Junior School for organising this worthwhile event.
