Coombe Country Park plans to launch National Tree Week, which runs from 23 November to 1 December, with some tree planting in the historic Deer Park. The park are asking for the public to put something back for Christmas, a time of huge consumption of energy and resources and get their hands dirty and give something back to the earth. Lots of volunteers will be needed to plant the native oaks and limes with the team at Coombe as part of their ongoing efforts to restore the historic landscape to its 18th century design by Lancelot "Capability" Brown. Brown the renowned English landscape gardener was employed by the Craven Family at Coombe Abbey to landscape the parkland in the estate and his tree-lined avenues are just one of his landmark features that the park are endeavouring to restore.
Grab your wellies and woollies and get the whole family involved and join the team at Coombe at the Visitor Centre at 10am on Saturday 23 November. Hot drinks and mince pies will be provided! Parking included.
Families very welcome.
Call the Visitor Centre on 02476 453720 or email coombe dot countrypark at coventry dot gov dot uk to give the team an idea of numbers so work can be planned accordingly to plant as many trees as possible.
