Planting at Cramlington AllotmentsPlanting day at Cramlington Post Office Allotments with Newcastle Building Society

April 2024

Cramlington Post Office allotments were visited by representatives of Newcastle Building Society to help plant native broadleaf trees and to celebrate Earth Day 2024. Volunteers from Cramlington Allotment Forum planted the saplings to create a hedgerow which will create wildlife habitats and encourage biodiversity.

“I'm delighted to be here today to support the planting of 100 trees alongside Cramlington Town Council. Looking forward to getting involved!”
- Stu Nicholl - Newcastle Building Society

The trees are all native British species, grown in the UK and include Hawthorn, Green Beech and Wild Cherry. These new saplings will provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity and preserving the natural environment. The volunteers gained hands-on experience of how trees are planted and learned how important trees are to the world in which we live. 


“We are here for a tree planting event with Tree Appeal which has been sponsored by Newcastle Building Society and Hamilton Legacy. It's amazing that we can do this as part of the Earth Day celebrations.”
- Maggie Martin, Community and Youth Manager - Cramlington Town Council

Newcastle Building Society has sponsored the planting of 100 trees at Cramlington, demonstrating their commitment to the environment and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world.
