Tree Planting in Newburn

Some of you may not be aware that Shared Interest has a dedicated Environment Team. Each year one of our key tasks is to find a way to offset the carbon we generate in the day to day running of the organisation, as well as through staff travel.

On Saturday 19th November, a mixed group of staff and Shared Interest Volunteers headed to Newburn Countryside Park to replant the eleven trees that represented our carbon use.

The day was a great success and we were all incredibly proud of our hard work. A plaque to identify the Shared Interest trees will go up in the next few weeks so if you are in the park over the festive period make sure you keep an eye out for our new trees, they are located near the sensory garden.

Thank you to everybody that was involved in the tree planting and planning of the day.
