Our first Celebration tree planting… Fred

Our first tree planting took place on Monday 6 January. If you remember Christmas and New Year, it was pretty wet and we didn’t manage to escape the flooding!

But we weren’t going to let that stop our tree planting with Fred…

The park and garden team were all on hand to help out and transport Fred and his family across the sodden parkland.

They also prepared the planting area ready for Fred and his family.

But why Fred? Well, if you’re a regular visitor to Charlecote, chances are you’ve seen Fred! He’s as part of Charlecote as the trees themselves. A regular visitor for many years, he has seen the park through each season and often pops in to the restaurant for a cuppa and a chat. Charlecote is one of Fred’s special places and Fred is one of our very special visitors. Who better to get the project started?!
