An Invitation from Suffolk Tree Warden Network
Dear Fellow Tree Warden,
Please find below an invitation to a meeting. I will be attending to talk and advise on setting up independent tree warden networks. It seems Suffolk District Councils are looking to go the same way as South Norfolk.
It looks an interesting and informative day so, if you are able to go, please book directly as advised. Maybe we can organise car share?
With best wishes
Dear Tree Warden,
I am writing to invite you to our Tree Warden Winter Get-Together on Wednesday 7thDecember.
We have a great day planned at Cockfield Village Hall (located between Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury).
The event is being hosted by the Tree Warden for Cockfield, Robin Morley, together with The Friends of Earl’s Meadow.
Jon Stokes, from The Tree Council will also be there to lead on what we hope will be a lively discussion on the future of Tree Wardening in East Anglia.
I have attached the details for the day, including the booking form and running order. Also attached is a location plan with directions to Cockfield.
Please let me know me by the 30th November if you are able to attend. You can either do this by posting the form or emailing me with your response. Alternatively you can phone Frances Jannaway (Tree Warden for Thornham Magna) on 01379 672 987 with your acceptance, or if you have any questions regarding the day’s proceedings.
I do hope you can attend this event, which will be a lovely mix of walking, talking and learning at a very interesting site. Expert help will be on hand for winter twig identification and warming soup on offer at the Village Hall on our return.
