Planting Trees with Newbattle Abbey College Students

Danielle Rowley MP joined Rural Skills students from Newbattle Abbey College to plant trees as part of the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, a network of forest conservation initiatives in association with the Woodland Trust.

The trees – two silver birch, two rowan, and a hazel were planted in Lord Ancrum’s Wood next to the College on Thursday 9th November 2018.

They were donated to Ms Rowley thanks to a partnership between the Woodland Trust, Sainsbury’s and ITV.

Danielle Rowley MP said: “Thanks to the new Rural Skills students for helping me plant the five trees. As both my parents attended Newbattle Abbey College, it has always been a special place for me. I can’t wait to visit again to see how they’ve grown!”
