Locations for all the trees have been identified following discussions with Cheltenham Borough Council, Cheltenham Borough Homes and Gloucestershire County Council. Planting will commence on Saturday 24th October, with the first trees being planted in Montpellier. Schoolchildren will be invited to take part in the Project.

David Evans, Chairman of the Centenary Group, commented ‘With our nature and climate remaining in crisis, the project will help to fight the emergency by planting trees in our Town. The benefits of more trees and woods to our health and wellbeing are now irrefutably established in science. It will be very satisfying to think our organisation has played a part in taking action to address our climate crisis’.

The first stage of the project is to plant fifty trees this Autumn and the remainder in Autumn 2021.

Project Manager and Landscape Consultant, Sue Jenkins said ‘We are grateful for the generous support and enthusiasm shown by the local Community wanting to provide a lasting environmental legacy for the town. During the pandemic residents have seen the importance of the public green spaces for informal recreation. Trees enclosing these spaces provide shelter and shade as well as dramatically increasing biodiversity and habitat for small birds.

Rotary clubs have worked for decades to eradicate the epidemic Polio, from the World, by funding and participating in vaccination programmes. To highlight this work, the first trees will be planted on End Polio Day, with symbolic purple crocuses planted around the base of trees.
