Hedge planting

12 volunteers, Mark from SMDC and 22 children plus staff from two of our local junior schools (Bishop Rawle and Cheadle Primary) planted 60 metres of native hedging on 17th February 2022. The planting was done along the fence of the small meadow to complete the project started a number of years ago.

258 whips, which included Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Hazel, Holly, Dog Rose and Crab Apple were planted and protected with canes and tree guards. When the hedge grows it will provide valuable shelter and habitat for many species.
