groups invited to apply for free trees for local projects
causes in the Burnham-On-Sea area can put themselves forward to
receive up to 100 free young trees.
Monkton Elm Garden and Pet Centre is offering schools, charities,
village organisations and community groups in the Burnham area
free saplings for local projects.
Andrew Pitman, Store Manager at the garden centre at Monkton
Heathfield near Bridgwater, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"To celebrate the start of the New Year, weve got 2,015
small sapling trees to give to any worthy causes that would like
them for projects they are running in 2015. Its the sixth
year weve run this campaign and it always proves extremely
"We are inviting schools, charities, village organisations
and community groups to come forward as they could qualify to
receive between 50 and 100 free young trees from us."
"We do have a limited number available and are allocating
them on a first come, first served basis, so we urge people to
submit their requests as soon as possible. The closing date for
requests is 5pm on Friday, February 20, 2015."
Worthy causes that apply for the trees must write in to Andrew
Pitman at the garden centre giving details of their project and
why they think they deserve to receive a group of saplings.
The successful applicants will be invited to come and collect
their trees from the garden centre at a mutually convenient time.
By entering the giveaway, the winner or winners have agreed to
take part in publicity.
Requests for the saplings should be posted to: Andrew Pitman,
Store Manager, Monkton Elm Garden & Pet Centre, Monkton Heathfield,
Taunton, TA2 8QN.
Andrew added: "As the saplings are fairly small they are
ideal for areas and projects where they can be planted together
in groups of around 50 or 100. They would be perfect for hedging
or creating small woodland areas."
