Following the lockdown period and given the unprecedented situation in regards to COVID-19, it would be very easy to get bogged down with the constant rolling out of the news and uncertainty regarding the future. 

However, we have some positive news for you today - a glimmer of hope - as Bawden Tree Care gets back up and running and gets stuck back in to helping the community. 

donating woodchip to a local primary school

The tree care team visited Netheravon All Saints C of E Primary School today to donate a hefty amount of wood chip to the school's nature garden...and for a great cause too! Not only will this nature garden be easy on the eye, it will serve as an educational environment for the children upon the planned return of reception, year 1 and year 6 pupils on the 1st of June, 2020. The school explained to us that it would be a great idea to get the children learning outdoors as much as possible upon their return - not only to make the most of the June sunshine, but to keep both staff and pupils as safe as possible and minimise any potential coronavirus transmission. The school's nature garden will be a fabulous opportunity for pupils to get outdoors, get some fresh air, enjoy the weather and learn in a way that is perhaps a little different to usual!

We pride ourselves as being available to our local community to help out where possible; we are so glad to have been able to assist with this particular school's needs, especially at such an uncertain time when community cohesion is more important than ever - not literally, of course, got to keep that 2 metres distance going!

Buckland Court Care Home also received a donation of some logs from the tree team a few months back to help complete their new animal enclosure - click here to take a look at what we did to help out!
