Looking to a Leafy Future in King George V Park
The Friends of King George V and Badminton Road Playing Fields planted some trees in King George V Park over the winter. The flowering cherries, amelanchier, silver birch and small leaved limes all looked great in the Spring and the Friends are very grateful to Cotswold Homes, Downend Round Table, True Clarity and Lancer Scott for the donations that made this possible.
Having seen their success, and also seeing the new trees recently planted in Page Park, the Friends Group are very keen to plant more trees next autumn and winter to leave a leafy legacy for the future.
Lots of Downend Voice readers walk in the park regularly, or may have done so in the past, and from consultations the Friends know that the people of Downend love having this large green space on their doorstep. To raise some of the money necessary for the tree planting the Friends have launched a Just Giving page to make it easy for local people to donate on line. If that is not the way you do things then pop into Downend and Bromley Heath Parish Council Office in the Library on a Monday or Wednesday morning and the Parish Clerk will take your donation or you can send a cheque, payable to The Friends of George V and Badminton Road Playing Fields to her. See address details on the Parish Council page.
Any amount will be welcome. The average cost of planting a small tree is £60 but it would be good to put some more mature ones in too. We particularly want to get some autumn colour with trees like Sweet Gum, Katsura tree and Persian Ironwood but we also want unusual trees like Paperbark Maple, Foxglove tree, Mulberry, Tulip tree, Strawberry tree, Judas tree, Pagoda tree and lots more.
The Friends are very enthusiastic about this project but need some money! If you want more information please e mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please help by making a donation towards Trees for the Future in King George V Park.

This project is being run by the Friends of King George V Playing Fields in Gordon's name but we assure you all contributions will go into the Friends account and be used for trees in the park.
