RESCUED TREE BRANCHES OUT INTO LOCAL SCHOOL

Cllr Susan Carey plants the tree at Hawkinge Primary School

One of the 38 trees rescued during the A2 Channel Tunnel Rail link widening scheme were planted at Hawkinge Primary School today (12 December).

In conjunction with Jacobs Babtie, dozens of schools across the county will receive a free tree complete with ties, stakes and mulch donated by Cleartrack.

Kent County Council (KCC) Lead Member for Education and School Improvement Susan Carey said: “This is a wonderful example of how all the different departments of KCC can work together for the benefit of so many. 

"Rather than simply chopping down the trees they have been brought to new locations and will bring joy to generations of children across the county.�
