On March 10th local residents of the Glamis Estate joined with environmental charity Trees for Cities for a community planting event.
Trees for Cities have been working on Glamis Estate in partnership with EastEnd Homes & Glamis Residents Association, to improve some of the outdoor spaces on the estate for the benefit of the residents. The improvements aim to green the outdoor areas through tree planting and landscaping that adds colour and interest whilst improving the biodiversity of the estate.
The free community planting event provided an opportunity for residents of the estate to help with the planting and beautifying of their local environment whilst enjoying this collaborative project. The many adults and children who attended also enjoyed face painting, a bird box making workshop, nature themed arts and craft to enjoy and a performance by an Elvis impersonator.
Sharon Johnson, Chief Executive of Trees for Cities said “The residents on Glamis West have a real passion for improving the communal green spaces on this estate. Their local knowledge and willingness to get involved with Trees for Cities has provided a great example of community-led design”.
