'CLITHEROE ROTARY WOOD’ ADDS TO TREES AT WADDOW HALL

Volunteers boost established planting at Waddow with 220 additional trees.

May 2021 - - A further 220 trees were established over Bank Holiday Weekend as part of the Clitheroe Rotary Woods project. This is the second Rotary Wood to be identified and planted by the group.

Members, volunteers and their families safely spent their weekend planting across Wades Hill, within the grounds of Waddow Hall, and will meet regularly now on the site to provide ongoing maintenance to the trees.

Oaks, Hawthorns, Hazels, Silver Birch and Dogwood have been added to Waddow’s landscape, thanks to the continuation of a partnership first started in 2018 between Clitheroe Rotary and Waddow Hall estate manager Luke Gaskill.
‘Some three years ago Clitheroe Rotary identified an area of land at Waddow to plant trees and we successfully planted up this area of the grounds,’ said Andy Belcham, Chair of the Clitheroe Rotary Wood project. ‘As we develop our Clitheroe Rotary Wood project it made sense to return to the site where things all started. It’s rewarding to be able to continue with our plans, adding to the saplings and being able to see them thrive.’
Clitheroe Rotary Wood was established in 2020 by a group of green-fingered Clitheroe Rotarians wanting to do something positive for the town and the climate – with the intention that this would be the first of many woods and potentially a community orchard in and around Clitheroe. The first Clitheroe Rotary Wood was planted successfully in December last year at Highmoor Park.
‘It was always our intention to learn how to manage the project, work on maintenance plans and identify future locations,’ said Andy. ‘Our first planting at Highmoor Park enabled us to harness a strong community spirit and we now have a network of people we can call on as our project grows.’
‘We are hugely appreciative for the donation of our trees and hedgerow plants and on behalf of Clitheroe Rotary Wood I would like to thank Woodland Trust and Sofology, one of their many sponsors for kindly donating the trees along with supporting canes and rabbit guards.’
