Our Pulborough office in West Sussex was one of two businesses who received watering cans, with our Batcheller Monkhouse staff, taking on the responsibility of watering the two new trees outside of the office.
Pulborough’s Lower Street is looking much greener thanks to the addition of six large trees in corten steel planters, and a corten steel and wood planter/bench. These were all funded by Horsham District Council’s ‘Welcome Back’ initiative, which was created by the UK Government with money from the European Union Regional Development fund.
The Pulborough Community Partnership organised the purchase of six large trees from local supplier Architectural Plants, including three cotoneaster and three hawthorns. Wild Pulborough supplied a rowan tree for the planter/bench, thanks to a donation from Viv Doussy and Tony Whitbread. Taylor Made Planters Ltd supplied the corten steel planters and the bench planter while Travis Perkins generously donated all of the compost required.
The trees were chosen as they are useful pollinators and provide berries for birds and two are located alongside Batcheller Monkhouse.
