Help Whitwell Parish Council plant a hedgerow of 1000 trees for National Tree week

As part of Bolsover District Council’s (BDC) Community Woodlands Project

the creation of a Community Orchard at Claylands, Whitwell will start with planting a hedgerow.

You are invited to join volunteers on Saturday 26 November and Monday 28 November between 10.00am-3.00pm to help plant whips along the boundary. You will need to wear protective clothing, gardening gloves and bring spades and wheelbarrows if you have them please.

Katherine Church, BDC’s Woodlands Project Officer, will bring along her apple press so if you have any spare apples from your garden please bring them along and apples could be pressed for on-site fresh apple juice too.

Bolsover TV will be visiting the orchard to do a feature on this project.

It would also be good to form an orchard planning and support group with residents involved, so please let the Parish Council know if this would interest you.

Please see the plan below to help you find the orchard, which is the triangle piece of land (points A-D) on the outskirts of the village accessible via a footpath from Claylands Road (point E).

Certificate of Recognition for Participation in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacons on 2 June 2022

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the amazing part you played in celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on 2nd June, whether you were a Town Crier, Piper, Bugler/Cornet Player, Choir or a private or community Beacon Organiser, for without your involvement The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacons and its associated events would not have been the enormous success they were.

TOGETHER, as a worldwide team, we ensured this unique tribute to our unique Queen Elizabeth, showed the world that the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, UK Overseas Territories and the Commonwealth, along with those who took part from other countries, came together as one, and undertook a celebration party “fit for a Queen,” an occasion that will be fondly remembered by millions upon millions of people for many generations to come.

I don’t mind admitting, when standing next to Her Majesty The Queen at Windsor Castle, London, as she lit her Principal Beacon at 9.45 GMT, a number of tears of joy filled my eyes knowing that you had all played the part you promised, making huge efforts to do so, and I am extremely proud of you all, so again, THANK YOU
