4 Goodgymers made their way to Coppets Wood Nature Reserve on a bright Sunday morning, to help the Coppetts Wood Conservationists, who look after Coppetts Wood and the Glebelands local Nature Reserves. The task was to plant 100 bare rooted tree saplings, a mix including ash, beech and hornbeam, to help establish a light barrier to protect wildlife from a new building development adjacent to the reserve. Jennifer, Rebekkah, Emma and Moya donned gloves along with conservationist Jake, and made their way with wheelbarrows to the site, where Petra and Brian demonstrated how to make the hole, plant and fill in, and then protect with mesh covered by more soil. Each tree was marked with a cane so that they can be identified as the foliage around grows up, and a few already established trees were lining the pathway. We stopped for tea made by Bob, and a (very nice chocolate) biscuit break, and then completed the job adding a clear plastic cover around each sapling to protect them from being eaten, and then gave them all a good drink of water to set them off. 3 hours work and some good chat, and all 100 trees were planted! Let's hope they all get off to a rootin' tootin' good start.

This park has just been nominated one of the top 10 parks to visit in London in a financial Times article. It is run as a charity for the people in the area. ( not a council park) well done guys in supporting!
