Hundreds of Trees planted at Tumbledown to help biodiversity

It’s been a hive of activity at Tumbledown over the last week after hundreds of trees have been planted ahead of the spring season. So far volunteers and groups have planted over 350 trees.

Tumbledown have welcomed over 50 volunteers to help plant trees including children from Southill Primary School, Westfield School, Weymouth College and The Lantern Trust.

Chair of Environment and Services Committee, Cllr Ryan Hope says: “It’s great to see so many people getting involved and volunteering in the recent tree planting events at Tumbledown. Planting more trees is great for people, planet, and the wildlife they will one day support, and supports Weymouth Town Council’s commitment to tackling climate change.  

“If you would like to get involved in planting more trees at Tumbledown, we are looking to welcome more people into this great community space to help out over the next few weeks.” 

Fancy volunteering some time to plant some tress or learning new skills in a friendly and supportive environment? Get in touch with Tumbledown Site Manager Alan Chambers 07799 237 629 or keep an eye out on the Tumbledown Group to find out more.
