As a registered Environmental Body everyone at Crewe takes very seriously the importance of us individually and collectively making sure that we act in the best interests of our environment. We have a beautiful setting over looking Lough Neagh which we should take care and pride in.
The club recently teamed up with the Tree Council to plant 600 native species bare rooted trees around the club and particularly around the new pitch which was recently constructed. In recent years there has been significant development around the club with some trees having to be sacrificed in the name of progress.
However, with the help of the Tree Council Branching Out Fund, we saw our members young and old take part in the planting supervised by our planting advisors to ensure the best opportunity for the young trees to grow and thrive for many years to come and contribute to the natural environment around Crewe Park.
The players and committee took time from their busy schedules to fit in some tree planting of Oak, Cherry, Rowan and Silver Birch which will add to the location and provide a haven for wildlife that runs along the Crew Burn which flows all the way down to Glenavy River and on to Lough Neagh.
We would like to thank everyone involved and the Tree Council for their support with this brilliant project.
