On Sunday I was at Lingfield Nature Reserve to join with volunteers planting new trees as part of National Tree Planting Week. Preserving our natural heritage is one of the most important legacies we will leave for the next generation. It is a real credit to Lingfield Parish Council that two decades ago they had the foresight to acquire this land for the benefit of the whole community. The nature reserve has become home to an increasing variety of wildlife in recent years, and these trees will have an important role to play in further enhancing this diversity. I would like congratulate everyone involved in this fantastic project.
