Chideock Soc Trees 2014The Chideock Society’s bid to The Woodland Trust was yet again successful and we will be working once more with the National Trust to extend the planting at Seatown. Ever wondered why we bother with this planting? It’s because hedges and trees play an important part in the local ecology, not only looking good, but also giving valuable foods and cover for wildlife. Over the years, some of the hedges and trees at Seatown have degraded to such an extent that they can no longer support themselves, never mind small mammals, birds and insects. Hundreds of yards of hedge have disappeared simply through inaction, but in recent years you may have noticed the fencing and planting near the Seatown ca rpark that the Society and National Trust have put in place. This is bringing back much needed hedging and support for wildlife. On 28th November we’ll be extending this planting and you’re invited to help. No horticultural knowledge is needed. Join us, across the field from the Seatown car park, at 10am. Make sure you bring warm clothes, gloves, sturdy shoes and a spade!
