Volunteers from Stroud Valleys Project have just finished planting nearly 4,000 trees making up 1.km of new hedgerows around the district . The majority of the work has been carried out in Frampton as part of restoring the area following gravel extraction.

Project officer Nadine Smykatz-Kloss said: “Besides planting hedgerows in Frampton we restored four traditional orchards, created a new pond, restored two more ponds and planted 12 in-field trees. If one person had tackled all this work alone it would have taken 204 days!”

 “Our volunteers have been just brilliant turning out to work in the snow, wind and rain to get the job done,” said project officer Richard Lewis who worked with volunteers out at Eastington hedge planting and installing kissing gates.

 SVP wants to continue this type of work so if you know of any hedgerows that may need restoring please contact the SVP on 01453 753358.
