FAMILY DAY 2022 report
The weather was just right on Sunday August 7th for the annual get together on the Haxby Road "Rotary Family Tree Partnership" site of friends and families of children who had trees planted to celebrate their birth in 2018/9.
At long last many of the trees have grown sufficiently well to now appear above the surrounding grass and thistles so the site is beginning to look more like a woodland area.
The staff at St Johns Sports Ground have created and maintained a network of footpaths so it is now much easier to access the individual trees.
Although the numbers attending were lower than last year four new families visited for the first time and selected and adorned their own specific tree with a Rotary plastic label.
A real bonus for visitors this year was the splendid crop of blackberries in many parts of the site so there were quite a few purple fingers going home.
Again everyone was very complimentary about this Rotary project and appreciative of the generous donations of 'goodies' for the youngsters from ASDA, Morrison and Tesco.
