Our Landcare Centre: Well Worth a Visit
  Icon for Save Trees message
Our centre, in Hartley Rd East, showcases local species, including those that would be a delight to plant in our home gardens to encourage our wildlife. Our keen volunteers look after the site, regularly removing invasive weeds like privet and asparagus.  
It's hard to believe that the first plantings at the centre were carried out only five years ago. National Tree Day and other similar events since then have involved community members in further planting of natives local to the area.  
The site is open to the public and is now a favourite spot for bird watchers and also for locals who walk the Parkrun circuit through to the Sports Grounds.
