Henley in Transition Reunion for Tilebarn Wood

Do you remember when the Henley in Transition (HIT) Group, with a lot of help from our friends, planted Tilebarn Wood five years ago on 26th November 2011?

They planted 270 native trees providing a wildlife haven and picnic and recreation area for local families. Since then they have been tending the area and the one acre wood is flourishing.

The HIT group is planning a re-union this Saturday, 26 November 2016 to see how well the trees are growing, tidy up a bit and plant one or two new trees and they would like to extend the invitation to others to join them to celebrate and share ideas for the next steps.  Please join them at 10.00am on site and bring coffee and cake.
