Goostrey featured in The Woodland Trust’s newsletter this month:
“I’ve been a Woodland Trust member for 20 years and a cub scout leader for five, so as there hasn’t really been any woodland conservation or planting for years here in Goostrey, Cheshire, I decided to combine the two. With some help from a local landowner, funding from the Goostrey Rose Festival and our local Brownie pack, we planted a new woodland bank (a bongs in local dialect) along the stream that runs through our village.
It proved so successful, with over 35 young people involved, each planting a tree to nurture and enjoy, that I am already planning the next event in March!”
