Tree Planting

Adderbury does its bit . . .
This is a photo of tree planting at the Forest School area next to Vera Wood Close.  It was a mix of Parish Councillors and residents with other volunteers from the Lakes volunteer group as well, so a good community effort and everyone enjoyed it.  The trees were donated by Woodland Trust.
