TREE PLANTING AT EASTCOMBE’ S SPORTS PITCH
In February, Bisley with Lypiatt Parish Council and the community planted five large Lime trees to make a statement that they strongly support climate change actions that aid carbon storage and provide for future shade against the hot summer sun. The 3m tall trees were planted along the perimeter of the field opposite the mature limes, beech and oaks in the Pleasure Ground. As they grow they will continue to extend the ‘avenue’ that we all enjoy as we enter Eastcombe from Old Neighbourhood.
