A Truly Community Planting Effort!

Caldecott Outdoor Learning Environment – the first trees go in.

 With the enthusiastic help of 20 volunteers – parents, teachers, school governors, the Mayor, councillors,  Abingdon Vesper Rotarians and members of ACC –  Saturday saw a heroic amount of work done at Caldecott School,  in the planting of an orchard, a native hedge, trees and a hazel copse. 

Abingdon Carbon Cutters (ACC) has been working with Caldecott Primary School and South Abingdon Children’s Centre to raise money to develop a stimulating outdoor learning environment.  Thanks to the generous support of Abingdon Vesper Rotary, which paid for essential groundwork at a cost of £1,500, planting began on Saturday, 12th January. 

A truly community effort, the project was delighted to receive financial support from the Jubilee Tree Fund through the VWDC.  ACC would also like to thank Bunkers Hill Nursery for donating hedging plants and Ringrose Tree Surgeons for a load of wood chippings.
