The first day of National Tree Week got off to a wonderful start for BTfL, who with the help of some amazing volunteers, planted trees in Handsworth Park to mark the James Watt Bicentennial Celebrations. What started out as a dank and dreary morning soon turned into a wonderful community celebration of trees and togetherness with 42 volunteers, including 9 children, supporting this very special planting. As well as local residents, other volunteers had come from much further afield. One lady from Kidderminster proudly said: “I came because trees are so important and we have to save the planet – one tree at a time.”
