Jubilee Wood Planting Photos

Around 1100 people turned out to plant the trees at Whitehead's Jubilee Wood a fortnight ago, including a few local politicians, including our local MP, Sammy Wilson. Many of them planted thirty or more saplings, so it seems reasonable to suppose that, between us, we managed to get over half of the whole woodland established in one day. Well done and thanks to everyone who came along.

With special thanks to Graham Ross, who provided all the photographs below, here are some of the participants.

There will be one further opportunity to contribute to the planting on Saturday 31st March. After that, Carrickfergus council has a couple of visits to explore the biodiversity of the area, with a Bug Hunt on 28th April and a guided birdwatching event on 6th May.
