Tree Listening at the AGM

Big thanks go to Alex Metcalf‘ of the Tree Listening Project and our patron Anneliese Emmans Dean for making our annual general meeting a very special event. It was amazing to hear the sound of water rushing up our 160+ year old lime trees and about Alex’s adventures in connecting people with their local trees. Anneliese introduced Alex’s talk with a lovely reading, which you can hear in the video below, along with a recording of one of the trees. She’s also written a short blog post about the event which you can find on her page.Happy tweet about Tree Listening event

Some visitors also used the opportunity to explore our woodland and test their tree knowledge on a quiz trail. We were very pleased that all who took part recognised enough trees to win a bar of our 20th anniversary chocolate.

And thanks also go to Lewis Outing for taking pictures! We used the opportunity to take a picture of him for once as he’s normally busy hiding behind the lens.

All in all it was another lovely meeting of our members and supporters after a highly succesful year for the charity. Here’s hoping that 2019 AGM will be just as good, or even better!
