Tree-mendous! Squire’s Garden Centres donates trees to Chertsey & Addlestone
Squire’s & Runnymede Borough Council planting Silver Birch trees in Homewood Park, Chertsey
Squire’s Garden Centres has donated 16 Silver Birch trees to Runnymede Borough Council as part of their ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign. The trees were planted in Homewood Park, Chertsey, and in Aviator Park in Addlestone on 26th February, in a joint effort by the Council’s teams and employees from Squire’s in Chertsey.
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, Broom Road Recreation Ground in Teddington, and Grenside Recreation Ground in Weybridge.
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 and March in numerous parks and green spaces, so that they can be enjoyed by everyone.”
