On Sunday (November 23), an exciting tree-planting venture and act of Remembrance is taking place in Glen Lethnot.
The Woodland Trust has offered to supply trees to Community groups who can plant them in remembrance of the First World War. Lethnot Hall Community Group decided this would be a suitable way to remember local people who served in WWI.
Forty local men served in The First World War, and 11 of them lost their lives.
The group is indebted to landowner Jamie Adamson who has given the use of an acre of ground next to Navar Church and graveyard (between Leightnie and Blairno) to plant the woodland. Hall funds have been used to pay the four-figure fencing cost.
All are invited to help plant this Community Woodland from 10 a.m. on Sunday. You are advised to wear warm clothing and stout footwear, bring a packed lunch and, if possible, a spade. Obviously this is all weather dependant - please ‘phone 660269 or 660400 for further information or weather update.
