Squire’s Garden Centres has donated 3 Silver Birch trees to Bernays Garden in Stanmore as part of their ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign. The trees were planted on 14th February, in a joint effort by volunteers and employees from Squire’s in Stanmore
Victoria Seco, a volunteer at Bernays Garden said; “We’d like to thank Squire’s Garden Centres for their kind donation of Silver Birch trees. Bernays Garden is a tranquil public garden in the conservation area of Stanmore. Everyone living and working in the locality is very welcome to come and enjoy the peace and beauty that it offers.”
Squire’s campaign started last autumn, when they pledged to donate 5p for every plant sold in September 2019. This has enabled Squire’s to donate 300 trees to parks and green spaces in over 30 locations, including Priory Park in Reigate, Dinton Pastures Country Park in Wokingham, Stoke Recreation Ground in Guildford, Littlewick roundabout in Woking, and Broom Road Recreation Ground in Teddington.
Squire’s Chairman Sarah Squire said; “We are very proud of our ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign. We want to thank our customers by giving back to the local area, and what better way to do this than by providing stunning Silver Birch trees that people can enjoy for years to come. Silver Birch are native British trees that are great for the environment, as they can improve air and soil quality, and they are also good for wildlife too, providing food and habitats for many birds and insects. We have been working closely with local councils and community groups who have planted the young trees this February in numerous parks and green spaces, so that they can be enjoyed by everyone.”
