West Berkshire Lockdown Woods Project


Three new woodlands are being created as living memorials to the lives lost during the coronavirus pandemic.

Newbury Friends of the Earth has teamed up with West Berkshire Council, Newbury Town Council and Hungerford Town and Manor to create the woods in Berkshire.

Dedicated to those who have died, the Lockdown Woods will also give hope for a healthy future.

Goldwell Park in Newbury, will be home to a second lockdown wood, with 300 trees planted.

"The wooded area in Goldwell Park will commemorate this hugely difficult period of disruption and sacrifice, and be a place of quiet and beauty into the far future, for people to visit and remember loved ones lost to the pandemic." (Dr Susan Millington, environmentalist and lead for the Lockdown Woods project).

Dedicating a tree is easy — email or see the attached poster for more details of how you can get involved.
