Here’s something fun for you & your kids to do.
Pick up an acorn, or a conker, or save a mango pip, squash a fig & gather some seeds, spit out some apple seeds – whatever tree you’d like to grow – just put the seeds in a small pot with soil – and watch the magic.
Then keep re-potting until it gets big enough to fend for itself.
Now do something radical – like finding a patch of unloved ground in & around Leabank Square – and plant it!
You will make all of us neighbours so very happy in a few years time when a stunning oak tree gives us shade – or we can pick some figs or apples.
And you can sit back & smile at how you’ve contributed to our fantastic neighbourhoods well-being!
