Student Volunteers Help Plant Trees

On Monday 26 March a group of students from Stroud High School joined with Stroud District Council Canal Volunteers to plant around 100 tree saplings on the offside at Wallbridge Lower Lock. It will take a few years but eventually they will make the offside much easier on the eye as well as providing a rich wildlife habitat. The saplings were provided by The Woodland Trust and are a mix of Hazel, Silver Birch, Rowan, Hawthorn, Dogwood and Cherry. Wallbridge Lower Lock has recently been renovated as part of the Stroudwater Canal retoration project
