The group at the school when we signed a formal agreement with the Green Light Trust establishing the Elmsett Greenlife Grove Scheme steering group. The name was chosen with the help of the children at the school, who liked 'egg' (but that's a credit card company so we couldn't call ourselves that), and 'greenlife'.
Steering group members from top left, clockwise - Celia Wright (treasurer), Jackie Parkinson, Blanche Seager, Alison Grant, Diane Diss, Sean French, James Hitchcock, Margaret Nelson (chair), and Sue Mackie (secretary).
A collection of chestnut and oak seedlings, grown from seeds collected in the village. The parent chestnut grows opposite the end of Manor Road and is a target of conker hunters every autumn. The parent oak grows on The Meadow, next to the High Street, opposite the end of Ipswich Road. If they survive, they'll eventually be planted in the community woodland.
