What's on in Howwood 2014

 

 


 

Howwood Wildlife & Woodlands in conjunction with Howwood Community Council-
Community Tree Planting Day

Thanks to a supply of sapling trees donated to HWW by the Woodland Trust a special community tree planting day has been arranged for Saturday 29 March 2014.   Meeting at the Rhombus Garden (opposite the Howwood Inn) at 10am. 

All welcome, including accompanied children,  to help out with the planting.  You may recall that we planted over 100 saplings in 2011 to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and that this was achieved in under 1 hour.   This time we are celebrating the forthcoming Commonwealth Games and have over 300 saplings, including Rowan, Hazel, Hawthorn and Birch, to plant so we need a good turn out to beat the previous record.  Please dress in old cloths suitable for the weather and bring gardening gloves and a spade or similar digging tool.

HWW is a registered Scottish Charity, Number SC033831 and supports environmental projects in Howwood including looking after the pathway walking routes and both community gardens.  Your support is vital.

THE ANNUAL VILLAGE SPRING CLEAN WILL TAKE PLACE OVER THE WEEKEND OF 5 & 6 APRIL 2014.

The Community Council is organizing a spring cleaning weekend on Saturday and Sunday 5 & 6 April 2014.  All welcome to come along and help clean up our village.  Meet at the Village Hall at 10am both days for the first session then after a lunch break meet again for the second session both days at 2pm.  The aim is to finish by 4pm latest.  Should we have sufficient people helping out one or both the Sunday sessions might be cancelled.

Supervised youngsters will be made most welcome.  Please wear old cloths appropriate to the weather.  Bags, gloves and litter pickers will be provided.
