Free Tree Scheme [click for details]
Free Tree Scheme for Residents from Rushcliffe Borough Council
Following the success of last year's tree schemes in the Borough in which individual residents could apply for two free trees and the parish council for ten, Rushcliffe have said the idea is to be repeated again this year.
For residents, two trees will be available – crab apple and rowan. Anyone wishing to apply can do so to Mr Paul Phillips whose direct telephone number at the council offices at Rushcliffe Arena, Rugby Road, West Bridgford is 914 8595.
The trees supplied would be between 1.5 and 2 metres in height and would be complete with tree guards, mulch mat and tree stakes.
Any queries maybe addressed to Mike Elliott, clerk to the Parish Council 0115 937 6506.

About Widmerpool Village
It is one of Nottinghamshire's oldest settlements and has always been an estate village, there being a 'Widmerpool' family as far back as 1283, including in 1333 a John de Widmerpool, who attended a Parliament in York.
The estate, having changed hands several times, was finally broken up in the 1950s. Eventually, Widmerpool Hall was renovated and divided into a number of apartments.
