Tillingham Woodland Interest Group.



5th December 2012. Last night at the Annual meeting TWIG was officially dissolved, read about in 'News hoots' All funds to be donated to the Green Light Trust.







As well as trying to replant trees locally, the group has been actively involved with projects to replace or plant hedgerows.

One of the first projects was the church yard extension, that was successfully planted under the supervision of Will Brush, of Essex Arb.

Since then we have also planted a hedge around the school play ground.  the day we did this the whole school turned out to help, from the tiniest to the top class.  all had a chance to plant, the older children digging enthusiastically.  The new hedge was watered and mulched by laughing, cheerful children.  as one teacher remarked' If the offsted people could witness this we would be top school!'





Whilst we were planting the hedge we had the opportunity to plant a tree for Norman Kemp to mark his 100th birthday, tree donated by Triology homes.



The children of St. Nicholas's were involved not only with the planting but also with the collecting of hedgerow plant seeds and their germination.

One of our supporters, the owners of Hazeleigh Woods, will be allowing groups of TWIGS to transplant young hornbeam saplings in 2007, for inclusion in the hedging we will plant with the new wood.


   This is the churchyard extension hedge that members of the group helped to plant 4 years ago, it is doing very well and will have to be trimmed back this year to thicken it up.  We hope to be planting many more metres of hedgerow like this in the future.  These pics taken March 2007.



In the near future we hoped to announce details of a financial incentive scheme for the replanting of hedgerows in the area.

Sadly 2012, the group has been dissolved and all monies to be donated to the Green Light Trust.
