Welcome to our Tiny Forest

This Tiny Forest was planted as the first step of the Eco Park development at the Hermitage Recreation Ground in Whitwick. The Tiny Forest was funded by North West Leicester District Council and Leicester County Council as part of the Local Authority Treescapes Fund. The planting day was a wonderful celebration, bringing together local primary school students, local community members and representatives of the councils.
