21st Century Thame supports Red Kite Family Centre

We were so pleased to find out that the 4 x 6ft Birch trees that we were planting on a small holding in Moreton were actually going to be in the new outdoor centre of the Red Kite Family Centre.

The trees were purchased from Waterperry Gardens with funding from Lucy Electric and the other sponsors of the #ThameTrees project (see all the sponsors below).

They were transported by BananaMove Couriers and Oak Garden Machinery with the navigation of Sue Martin-Downhill, Chair of 21st Century Thame and lead on the #ThameTrees project.

The trees were planted by a small planting party which included 2 students of Lord Williams Lower School as part of their 6 month voluntary strand of the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award.

We are really looking forward to seeing these trees in a few years time when they should be providing some shade to the families who will, undoubtedly, love the activity centre.

Over the summer of 2020 this planting team, along with a few others, planted a hedge with about 200 hedge trees and the Red Kite Family Centre outdoor area was just an idea.  When we returned to plant these 4 wonderful birch trees we were amazed to find that the area had been transformed into a play area for children with plenty of mud, watering cans, tyres and a whole host of other items to get the kids playing in the outdoors.

Thanks to all our sponsors for allowing us to be part of this great project.
