Eco Ely Tree Planting

The Eco Ely Committee planted 500 trees on the 30th November 2019. The trees were planted at the underpass by the Ely Leisure Village. Amanda Halls and Lisa Robertson organised the whole event including tree funding and planting.

Amanda quotes: “We are extremely grateful from those planting and those who donated to the project.” The donations came from OVO, I dig scheme, Silver Oak Coffee & Barchams. Money is being raised through a GoGetFunding online fundraiser set up to buy small trees further down the cycle/footpath.

Another tree planting session is planned for Spring 2020 – if you would like to get involved go to the Eco Ely Facebook page and ask for details of the tree subgroup.
