Squire’s Garden Centres has donated 6 Silver Birch trees to Crawley Borough Council as part of their ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign. The trees will be planted at Overdene Drive in Gossops Green and around Dobbins Pond in Ifield.
Mark Thompson, West Patch Leader at Crawley Council said; “I would like to thank Squire’s Garden Centres for its kind donation of Silver Birch trees. We are sure that local residents will enjoy them in the years to come.”
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, Stoke Recreation Ground in Guildford, Hickleys Corner in Farnham, Homewood Park in Chertsey, 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.”
