Tree planting in Palmer Park

As part of the Tree O'clock project which aims to set a world record for the number of trees planted in a day, there is an event in Palmer Park to plant 2000 trees as well as other events around Reading.

The Palmer Park event is sponsored by Stella -- the beer company -- which I assume means they are stumping up a reasonable amount of cash for the benefit of the community, which is great. However the flipside of this is that the event is being promoted as over 18 only -- rightly so I would say. There are other events in the Reading but some people are not going to want to travel which will impact on the turnout.

I have not managed to get hold of the organisation yet but hopefully some of these trees will be hedging to replace the section we lost earlier in the year!

I am not sure whether I am in Reading on that day but if I am I will be heading down there to help.

UPDATE: The Council say that there will be at least three different planting areas in Palmer Park and children will be welcome to help plant trees by the playing area near the corner of St Bartholomew's Road and Wokingham Road.
