Girl Guides Plant Over 600 Trees

At the weekend, along with girls & leaders from Bothenhampton Guides, Charmouth Guides & West Dorset Rangers, the Broadwindsor Guides planted over 600 trees as part of the Queens canopy, by kind permission of the landowners at Downbarn Farm in Mosterton.
This also reinstated a county boundary (Dorset/Somerset) Hedgerow that was removed by previous land owners in the 1930’s.
They first learnt about the different types of trees and the benefits of planting new trees/hedges.

They worked really well, met new friends and thoroughly enjoyed hot chocolate and cake to warm them up!

Well done to all involved!
