HSBC Volunteers help out!

We were recently joined by an enthusiastic team of volunteers from HSBC (expats team) who very kindly helped us with one of our ongoing projects at our Arboretum at Val de la Mare.

The team of twelve were escorted to our newly created Chinese Zone where they undertook a varied list of important tasks; Weeding and mulching newly planted trees, filling in random holes, troughs and dips before cutting, moving and stacking quite a voluminous amount of recently felled dead pine trees.

The team kept an impressive level of high spirit throughout the day and, I hope, left with a deservedly sense of achievement and satisfaction.

A HUGE thank you to everyone that helped out, your contribution really made a difference, come back soon!
