Engaging in environmental work in the community`

Woking People of Faith supported the event by getting the word out to volunteers keen to support an  excellent environmental project.  Local MP, Jonathan Lord and Woking's Mayor, Ken Howard were present for the planting of the first tree in memory of a local resident. Woking Borough Council's chief executive, Ray Morgan was also present, along with local police and members of local churches and the Sha Jahan mosque.

10th November 2012

Woking People of Faith jointly organised the planting of 105 trees in Byfleet. Memebers of Byfleet's community, St Mary's Church, Local Schools and WPOF members turned out to plant a border of trees along the border of 'three acre field'. The Woodland Trust generously donated a 'wild harvest' selection of  Blackthorn, Hazel, Elder, Dog Rose and Oak trees which will eventually provide residents with fruits, berries and nuts to harvest.  The aim is to improve Byfleet's environment and to leave a legacy for future generations.  Serco has kindly sponsored the planting by agreeing to water the trees.
