Events — upcoming major events

 

Cherry Fields - Tree Planting etc

 

Yes we have more trees to plant - You may have noticed that the fields purchased by the Parish Council for the village now contain the beginnings of a woodland with around 1600 trees already planted.   The fields are on the south side of Fiskerton Road opposite the junction with Laburnum Drive,

Following on from the successful tree planting day held last November we held another day on the 11th February.  

Call Lincoln 807088 for information on how you can help.

It is hoped that a contractor will start work on constructing all weather paths down to the River Witham and within the woodland by the end of spring.  The contractor will also construct a fun bike path among the trees in the lower field with humps to make it a bit more challenging. 

 

 Tree Planting

Many more events are listed in the Cherry News which is delivered to every household in the village ten times a year.

 Could you offer something to our community on a voluntary basis?
