On April 23rd, Neston Earth Group is holding the Neston Earth Festival, postponed because of the Queen’s death. We plan to launch the printed version of the Neston Tree Trail, created jointly by Neston Civic Society and the Neston Earth Group. The Festival is at Neston Community & Youth Centre, 12 – 4, and is free. The Tree Trail can be downloaded as a pdf on the About Neston page.
On October 19th we planted three trees at Neston High School, for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, for Reg Chrimes, and for Norman Angel, who helped bring secondary education to Neston. One of the trees was giving us concern, but our local expert reassures us that it is just later producing buds than other trees.
We are looking for a volunteer to take over the editing of the newsletter. Mike Shipman has done a fanastic job for several years, and wishes to retire.
