Despite planting over 3000 native trees over the past couple of years here at Basel Cottage, we are continuing with our programme of tree and shrub planting. Throughout our land and in our enclosed woodland we plan to ensure the woods remain for centuries to come. PLANT BRITAIN: We are now very happy to be supporting the Plant Britain Initiative launched recently by the BBC’s Countryfile programme. Plant Britain is an ambitious two-year challenge to get us all planting to help combat climate change. And at the same time, it will help to boost our wellbeing and wildlife. Plant Britain launch with the goal of planting 750,000 trees – one.
We were thrilled that HRH The Prince of Wales happily agreed to sign a copy of his own Watercolours Book at the launch of the Llandovery Motorbike Weekend. The Book was later auctioned at the Charity Lunch that we held at The Castle Hotel in Llandovery in aid of The Prince’s only Welsh Charity, PRIME Cymru. More than eighty people wishing to support PRIME Cymru enjoyed a fantastic four-course summer themed luncheon and afterwards were keen to support further by taking part in a raffle also in aid of the Charity where local businesses had kindly donated a huge array of fantastic prizes – A good time was had by all!
