The re-planting of The Warren has made it into national newspapers. The Daily Mail arrived to report on a visit from the Chief Executive of Network Rail, Andrew Haines, and the CEO of The Tree Council, Sarah Lom who came to plant two symbolic yew trees and to have a look at the progress made so far in the regeneration plan. Network Rail funded the grant of over £32,000 awarded by The Tree Council for the replanting of The Warren. The hoped for full planting day could not take place due to Covid restrictions but the two CEO’s were keen to see the progress of the natural regeneration protection.
Two community volunteer planting days are planned for January 2021, weather and lockdown restrictions permitting. It is hopes that around 800 saplings will be planted by a band of local volunteers.
