Tree planting event to celebrate centenary

A TREE planting ceremony to celebrate 100 years of the Girl Guide Movement is being held at Raincliffe Woods.

The event was due to be held before Christmas but was cancelled due to the bad weather.

It will now take place on Saturday starting at 10am.

A spokesman from the Friends of Raincliffe Woods said: “It is expected that more than 100 Girl Guides will attend and that as many trees will hopefully be planted, but we would appreciate some help with the planting on the day.”

If you are able to attend please meet at 10am at Green Gate Car Park - the one nearest the Forge Valley/Mowthorpe Road junction. All tools will be supplied. It is expected that the event will be completed by lunchtime.
