Members of the Yeo Vale Rotary Club planted 150 trees in January to help offset the Carbon footprint of the Classic and Supercar Show which is held each year at Sherborne Castle.
Nigel Young, Chairman of the Charity that owns the Show, said that as well as raising funds for local charities (£231,000 in the past 6 years) we felt it important to do our bit in helping to mitigate the Show’s carbon footprint. The picture shows Rotarians Bob Forward, Bruce Bailey, Graham Middleton and Pete Prager planting trees near the Crown and Victoria pub in Tintinhull where we meet each week. Additional trees have been planted on Farms owned by Mark Batstone of Chilthorne Domer and John Wilkins of Coat.
Trees were obtained from The Community Volunteers, a national organisation who received funds from the energy company OVO to provide 350,000 trees this year.
