Tree planting group boosted by developer’s donation


A tree planting scheme in Thornbury has been boosted by a generous donation from developer Bloor Homes.

The housebuilder donated £500 towards Thornbury’s Tree Strategy Group, which was formed six years ago to increase the number and variety of trees in the town.

The money was put towards the cost of buying the 15 trees which were planted by the group in 2016, and which included the landmark 100th tree.

Fourteen of the trees were planted outside Bloor Homes’ Thornbury Fields development off Morton Way.

Judith Hurford, chair of the Thornbury Tree Strategy Group, said: “Several trees have been planted on Morton Way in the past two years, and when work began on the Thornbury Fields development we felt that a row of cherry trees in front of the houses would further enhance the landscape in that area. 

“We are all volunteers and rely entirely on fundraising to pay for the trees, so we were absolutely thrilled when Bloor Homes offered to donate £500 towards our work. The donation has made a massive difference and we are extremely grateful for their support.”

Rowena Adams, Sales Director at Bloor Homes South West, said: “The Tree Strategy Group has done a wonderful job in enhancing the appearance of the town and we were delighted to contribute towards their continued good work.

“I am sure the trees they have planted outside Thornbury Fields will prove to be a great addition to the area and hope they will be enjoyed both by residents at the development and the wider community for many years to come.”
