The Plantation Wood Ellesmere
The trustees have been busy throughout the year raising money. We have applied to Shropshire Council for section 106 money to purchase two notice boards, one for the entrance gate across from Castle Fields, and the other on the footpath near the Canal.
We have also applied to Ellesmere town council for a grant to buy a Gazebo for use in the Plantation, and two Pop up banners.
We applied to the Tesco Bags for Help scheme and thanks to the massive public support we were successful and have been awarded the top amount of £4,000 to repair the steps and handrails in the plantation.
We also applied to the Tudor Griffiths Land Fill fund for a grant of £1,000 to cover the costs of tree surveys, which we were successful in getting.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended the fundraising Coffee morning at the Wardens Bungalow yesterday, to find out about our plans for the Plantation going forward, try some of Marguerite's lovely cakes, and sign up as a 'Friend of the Plantation'. We estimate that around 100 people came along, which is a massive show of support for the Plantation. Not all the final count has been done, but thanks to your generosity we have raised over £550. Thank you all.
This show of support has given the committee a huge boost
