News from your District Councillor - John Matthissen
Just a brief reminder this month that seedling native trees are always welcome, and as you weed your flowers and vegetables, please dig out any little trees and pot them up or move to a shady corner until autumn. Long tap roots, especially oaks, should be shortened to encourage fibrous roots which will establish better when re-planted.

In the coming winter we are making the new Ipswich Children’s Hospice Tree House Appeal one of our tree planting projects, and every free tree will save a pound to be spent on special play equipment and other project needs. Their planting scheme calls for 2000 trees, so there is some way to go! To get in touch with me see Who’s Who

Please get in touch if you have a problem with which I, as your District Councillor, may be able to help. Telephone between 9am and 9pm, on 01449 771742, email to or write to me at 3 Wash Lane Corner, Great Finborough, Stowmarket IP14 3BJ.
