Volunteers needed to plant living memorial to Barry’s First World War heroes

First published in News

ONCE again, a Barry environmental conservation group is calling on volunteers to help them plant native Welsh trees along one of the main entrances into Barry in memory of the 700 Barry men and women who never returned from the First World war.

Their next tree planting event will be on Friday, May 2, from 4.30pm-6pm meeting at the junction of Merthyr Dyfan Road and Port Road East.

Please wear appropriate clothing and wellies or strong boots.

The chairman of the White Farm Conservation Group, Cllr Rob Curtis, who also represents the Gibbonsdown ward where the tree planting will take place, said:

“So far we have managed to plant around 400 trees but we need more volunteers to help us plant even more. So please feel free to come along and plant a few saplings which will give a home to wildlife for many years to come.

We would also like to thank both Keep Wales Tidy and the Woodland Trust for supporting us with insurance cover and the saplings which we will be planting.”
