York Rotary Family Tree Planting Partnership, Community picnic

Sunday 20th August was the fourth family gathering and over seventy family and friends of the children who had trees planted for them by Rotary in 2019, they visited the site off Haxby Road.

The weather was very pleasant and the families were really impressed with how much the trees had grown. As at previous gatherings we encouraged families to adopt a specific tree and give it some TLC and many showed photos of their child with that tree then and how it looked now. On Sunday more families identified and put their child’s name on a specific tree so there are now around forty named trees on the site.

The children really appreciated the goodies generously donated by our local supermarkets. The support team were also very gratified with the many compliments from parents for this Rotary initiative. The area is now beginning to look more like a woodland.

More information and photographs will soon be on the Family Tree Planting section of the York Rotary website.
