Day of family fun to put new forest
TRANSITION Town Wellington (TTW) hosted its first social event on Fox’s Field at Tonedale.
The Midsummer Celebration and Family Picnic was held to raise awareness of the new forest garden as somewhere the people of Wellington and Rockwell Green can visit and enjoy.
It saw the unveiling of official signage at the field as well as the launch of TTW’s new Foraging Map along with its Foraging Guide and Recipe Booklet.
TTW chair Anita Roy welcomed everyone to the event before the sign unveiling by the Mayor of Wellington, Cllr Mark Lithgow, and Cllr Dixie Darch, portfolio holder for climate change on Somerset West and Taunton Council.
Activities included being able to watch professional scythers at work and a talk on Forest Gardens by TTW’s Helen Gillingham.
Nigel Lilly, Wellington’s first water guardian, was on hand to explain how he monitors the state of our local rivers, and how to get involved in a new TTW Water Guardian Team – in association with Somerset Wildlife Trust – while visitors also enjoyed live music, children’s activities and a cake sale in aid of TTW.
Dogs and their owners were also welcomed to Fox’s Field on this special occasion.
