Helpers thanked for giving a hand at planting success

A senior councillor has thanked volunteers who took part in the Hotham Park event in Bognor Regis.


Cllr Dan Purchese, Arun District Council’s cabinet member for neighbourhood services, said: “A huge thank you to everyone who turned up to this event to lend a hand.


“As a council, we are highly focussed on preserving our environment and mitigating the effects that a changing climate may have on our parks.”


As well as the trees, a new wildlife-friendly native hedge was planted in the conservation area of the park.


The ten-year tree planting strategy is being drafted by the council, based on existing tree cover and an increasing public appreciation of the importance of trees within our urban and rural communities.


The council is seeking to build on previous successes which has seen thousands of trees planted across the district on areas of open space provided with new developments as well as existing open space. This includes 10,000 at Bersted Brooks in North Bersted.
