We are delighted to share with our supporters that our application to the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme has been successful and we will be put forward to a customer vote in Tesco stores during March and April 2019.
The project funding will see us hold a community tree planting day in the woods next winter, with invitations to local school children and the local community to join us and plant a new exotic tree at the arboretum – which will be looked after for future generations to visit.
We are asking all of our supporters in the Wotton Under Edge and Cam areas to use their Tesco vote for our project so that we can buy as many new exotic trees, tree guards and stakes as possible.
To vote, you will need to make a purchase in store of any value. You will receive one token per transaction and it’s not necessary to purchase a carrier bag in order to receive a token.
Please share this far and wide and help us to start planting new trees at the arboretum!
