Trees to beautify Cowell’s streets

Brooks Drive in Cowell will be getting a makeover with trees planted by community members.

Franklin Harbour District Council has registered to participate in Planet Ark’s National Tree Day on Friday, July 28.

Tourism officer Stacey Franklin said the council had already got classes from Cowell Area School involved.

“We’ve tried to make it educational as well, the students will get to learn about what is involved with planting trees,” Mrs Franklin said.

The event is open to anyone from the community who wants to get involved.

“Anyone from the community is welcome to join us, there’s no need to register or put your name down, just show up,” Mrs Franklin said.

The day will start at 10am, and the council is funding the event.
