As the first signs of Spring appear in gardens across the country Cloughmills Community Action Team are eager to start planting again in their award winning Community Garden in Cloughmills.

This Saturday, February 11, from 11am – 2pm, the team are asking for help from individuals and families to plant more trees and flowers for their Woodland Glad at The Mill. The planting day is part of a programme of activity to create a woodland for future generations to enjoy at The Mill. The day is kindly funded under the Grow Wild programme sponsored by the Big Lottery Fund and Kew Gardens.

Patrick Frew, Chairman said: “Our Community Planting Days are always a great opportunity to do something enjoyable as a family and as the days start to get longer it’s a wonderful time to be outside getting plants and trees into the ground. This is a really exciting project and somewhere in the future that people will be able to visit again and again to see how the woodland develops and changes over the years. If anyone is free to come along and get involved the planting will start at 11am and finish up with warm soup and sandwiches at lunchtime - all spades and tools will be provided.”
