Greater Western Water (GWW) and Pinkerton Landcare & Environment Group (PLEG) invited the public to join them on Sunday 28th August for a large scale tree planting day at Pinkerton Link.
This is located at GWW’s water treatment plant at Surbiton Park. A total of 28 people took up the invitation to plant trees, ranging from people from Bacchus Marsh, Melton and other places. We planted a total of 460 Grey Box trees!
|Restoration of Thistle-Gone Flat|
Work started in early 2006 and some photos taken in June are presented here. Major changes have already been made since the start of the project.

Indeed a longer term project for the group - but one that must be done for future generations.
