Free Tree Scheme Returns!

The Free Tree Scheme Returns

The Free Tree Scheme initiative forms part of Rushcliffe authority’s strategy to provide further sustainable environments across communities in the Borough with the chosen tree species native to the Borough.

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Executive Manager for Communities Dave Mitchell said in 2019 when the scheme was first launched: “Thank you if you applied to the scheme, we are delighted with the response.

“There was also good interest in our tree warden scheme to protect and help trees to flourish in our towns and villages, so as ever we’re really pleased with Rushcliffe residents’ commitment to the environment.

“We hope that by increasing the number of trees in the Borough, as our communities grow, our green environments will continue to do so too and improve the quality of life for current and future residents.”

Coronavirus – Bunny Neighbour Support

As the coronavirus pandemic grows, there will be an increasing need for our community to pull together and support those who need to isolate. The kind of help people need will vary but could include delivery of shopping, collection of prescriptions, or - for someone living alone - a regular phone call to check they are okay. To make self-isolation effective, close contact with other people must be kept to a minimum, therefore ideally each person needing help will have this help provided by just one or two persons. To try and achieve this, what we plan to do is to establish a buddy system, where everyone in need of support is given details of a buddy who is willing to help them during this time.....

CPRE, the Campaign to Protect Rural England

CPRE, the Campaign to Protect Rural England has changed its emblem, to a new more up to date one, and In trying to promote what they do, are returning to the principles of CPRE’s founders to promote, enhance and protect the countryside.

The organisation has reported a drop in membership and has accepted a request from those who are members to be more ambitious in their scope to achieve a countryside for everyone.

They say a multitude of surveys show that most people feel the countryside is an important national asset but that extensive consultation over the past 18 months has shown that CPRE can be perceived as being negative, with this putting many potential supporters off.

The Chief Executive, Crispin Truman, says everyone will see a change in tone from CPRE, focusing more on the positive solutions that they have always tried to create.  This is underpinned by their new strategic aims – ‘Connect people and countryside’, ‘Promote rural life’ and ’Empower communities’.

Your parish council are members of the organisation and clerk Mike Elliott can be contacted for details on 0115 937 6506.

Free Tree Scheme

Free Tree Scheme from Rushcliffe Borough Council

Following the success of last year’s tree schemes in the Borough in which individual residents could apply for two free trees and the parish council for ten, Rushcliffe have said the idea is to be repeated again this year.

For residents, two trees will be available – crab apple and rowan. Anyone wishing to apply can do so to Mr Paul Phillips whose direct telephone number at the council offices at Rushcliffe Arena, Rugby Road, West Bridgford is 914 8595.

The trees supplied would be between 1.5 and 2 metres in height and would be complete with tree guards, mulch mat and tree stakes.

Any queries maybe addressed to Mike Elliott, clerk to Parish Council 0115 937 6506
