Forton Road

Forton Road

As a new committee, we agreed that something needed to be done about the roadside verges near the Forton Road roundabout entrance to Newport.

Following several meetings with Adrian Corney of Telford and Wrekin Council, we decided that, collectively, we would plant 6 native species rowan trees in Spring, followed by native English bluebells and daffodils in Autumn 2013.  Clearing the brambles etc first was no mean feat for our volunteers!

In the meantime we also replaced the old concrete planters with two tractor tyre planters,  which are more ‘in keeping’ with the rural area.
