Volunteers add 175 trees to Cirencester hospital grounds

Many thanks to the friendly people at Moore Allen & Innocent who are at Cirencester Hospital today (Thursday 3 Feb) to add some life to the grounds.

As part of their 175th anniversary celebrations, the Cotswolds-based Auctioneers, Valuers and Property Agents decided to plant 175 trees in the hospital grounds.

They cleared the area for planting on a warm day in November last year and have been back today to get the trees into the ground, guided by groundsman Andre.

Nicky, Mark, Shelbie, Mark and Roy were on the morning planting shift with five more volunteers due in the afternoon.

They are also planning to add a commemorative seat to the hospital grounds in memory of a colleague.
