Lockdown Wood Project 

The Lockdown Wood Project group is encouraging local residents to find tree seedlings in their gardens and allotments while under lockdown, put them in pots and look after them in their own gardens. The aim is to grow them on until they are big enough to plant into a new wood which will be called ‘Lockdown Wood’. It will commemorate this hugely difficult period of disruption and sacrifice which has impacted on us all.
