Thanks to funding from the Woodland Trust Bellevue Park now has an interpretation panel which gives information on some of the park’s most significant trees.
This year the Woodland Trust are helping fund projects within the Council worth £20,000 and there will be a further £20,000 available next year.
The funding is part of the Street Trees Project which promotes and celebrates the benefits of urban trees.
Picture shows Clare Morgan of the Woodland Trust handing Cllr David A Bithell a cheque for £5,000 as part of this year’s funding.
At the handing over of the cheque the Friends of Bellevue planted a Freemans Maple, which produces a breathtaking display of red leaves each Autumn. It was planted in memory of Kay Lewis who recently passed away. Kay was a much loved and long standing member of the Friends group and will be sorely missed by all who knew her. the Friends of Bellevue are a group of local volunteers who help to organise and run events, raise money and generally look after the best interests of Bellevue Park.
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for the Environment, said:
“I would like to thank the Woodland Trust for their welcome funding for this interpretation board which will be very useful to visitors to the park who will be able to identify specific trees.”
