Exciting News!

get ready

In keeping with the KTGC theme
of providing a legacy for
future generations,
we recently applied to
The Woodland Trust
for some free trees.

We are pleased to announce
we have been granted
a copse pack!

silver

We will soon receive
the following saplings:
10 Silver Birch
10 Wild Cherry
10 Rowan

cherry

These new trees
will fit in well
with our current species
and will encourage
birds and other wildlife.

rowan

We are due to meet
with Colchester Borough Council
to discuss the exact positioning
which will probably be
adjacent to ghost wood.

As soon as we have
further information
we will let you know…
