Tree Planting Smeale 12/04/15

Host and young apprenticeTree Planting at Smeale, near Andreas at 11.00 a.m. on Sunday, 12th April 2015.

At Knock e Nean, Smeale, near Andreas, we have been asked to plant a mixture of trees across a field corner, and to create a hedgerow along a second field, with a few infill trees in an area already planted by the landowner.  We will be planting in fields which have easy access, so no great hills to clime or distances to tramp.

We will be meeting at 11.00 a.m., and will have coffee, tea and cakes for everyone afterwards.  Please wear warm clothes and stout shoes or boots.  If you could bring stout garden gloves it would be a help, and we will have plenty of spades available.

DIRECTIONS for Sunday 12th April:

Take the A9 road from Ramsey to Andreas.  In Andreas village bear right on to the A17 towards Bride, but at the roundabout take the B6 road on your left to Smeale.  Continue along the B6 for about 2 miles, when you will see a blue cottage on your right, with a sign for Boarding Kennels.  This is the entrance to Knock e Nean.  Turn into the yard, where we can park.
