650 Saplings planted in Wimborne SANGs
This winter by the end of March, Trees for Wimborne, a subgroup of Wilding Wimborne, will have planted 650 trees in the Dogdean and Stourview SANGs of Wimborne. Most were provided by the Woodland Trust, some bought thanks to funding by Dorset Council and the Dorset Community Foundation and some provided by individuals. Then, over the winter, fifty or so volunteers have prepared the ground, planted and continued to care for the saplings, so furthering Trees for Wimborne’s vision for increasing the tree cover in the area.
Wimborne War on Waste - Litter Pick
More than 40 volunteers from the Wimborne Community enjoyed the sunshine on Sunday 5th February and helped pick up the biggest amount of litter we have ever collected in 2 hours on one of our picks! It was shocking to see and we could have easily spent the whole day clearing rubbish along verges, underneath bushes, on streets, paths and the river banks! The worst offenders were cigarette butts - we lost count of those in town, especially outside pubs, bus stops, and other venues where people gather then drop their butts as they rush in!
