Footsteps Event Report: follow up for the ‘Small Footsteps 2016’

Thank you to all those who were able attend on Saturday 18th March when we planted 110 Wild Harvest Tree Saplings in the Balsall Heath area of Birmingham (Pickwick Park – St Pauls Road and Balsall Heath Park – Longmore Street) in order make our playing areas more friendly as well as to promote food growth on trees. This activity was followed by a short litter pick of both areas.

Feedback from parents and children has been very positive and we have been asked to organise small environmental events on a regular basis (we will of course discuss this amongst ourselves and see what is possible).

Although it was a Footsteps led event, it was a collaboration with the Woodlands Trust and the Balsall Heath Forum, we have also had some wonderful and encouraging messages on the Footsteps twitter page.

A big thank you to Emad for arranging all the logistics and to Shabana and Misbah for preparing all the handmade sandwiches the night before. I would also like to communicate my appreciation to all the Footsteps committee members who either emailed their support or attended on the morning.
