Bulmershe Park Tree Planting

Earley Town Council who co-own Bulmershe Park with Woodley Town Council has been only too pleased to support Wokingham Borough Council’s tree planting initiative and agreed for trees to be planted in Bulmershe Park to enhance the existing orchard.


Freely Fruity, a local charity who grow and provide fruit and vegetables to local communities kindly donated their own grown fruit trees to the initiative and on 21st November 2022, despite the very wet weather, Freely Fruity along with volunteers from ACER (The Whiteknights Resident Association) FoBOS (Friends of Bulmershe Open Space) and Virgin Media O2 successfully carried out the planting of 25 fruit trees consisting of six species of apple trees and two species of plum trees.


Councillor Sheena Matthews of Earley Town Council said, “There was a great bunch of volunteers, with a healthy selection of trees and despite the fact that Freely Fruity considered the morning to be their wettest ever planting session, the atmosphere was great”.


Earley Town Council would like to thank Freely Fruity and all the volunteers for their help and support.
