The Green Space

Placeholder image

Latest info .... 


The video below shows the whole three week planting process condensed into 3 minutes

Two fields have been identified as suitable, both behind the Old School and adjacent to the Green Lane bridleway.

With funding from the Mersey Forest Project, Cheshire West and Chester Council's Climate Emergency Fund and Guilden Sutton Parish Council the purchase of the back field is complete. Most of the trees and shrubs have been planted.

The trees are protected with tree guards and mulch in the form of wood chippings. The tree guards are essential to prevent them being destroyed by rabbits and the mulch will keep grass and weeds at bay as well as maintaining moisture in  the soil.

We want to open the area to everybody as soon as possible and particularly let the kids in! Please bear with us while the area is made suitable for use.
