Several new trees have been planted on highway verges across Faversham following lobbying from Lib Dem-led Faversham Town Council's Climate and Biodiversity committee.
Cllr Chris Williams said "It's great to see new trees being planted in Abbey Place and Station Road by KCC highways. Lobbying from Faversham Town Council's Climate and Biodiversity group has helped secure funding for these in our town. Also a commitment for many more next year!"
Since the Lib Dems took the majority of seats on Faversham Town Council in May 2019, the town council has invested significant efforts in attempting to tackle the Climate and Biodiversity emergency, including last years Tree week tree giveaway, where the town council gave away 1,000 trees for residents to plant in their gardens, planting bee-friendly plants across town, lobbying for increased re-wilding, reducing the town council's carbon footprint and running a number of events across town.
This week see the Council host a series of events in the run-up to COP26 to engage with young people about the Climate and Biodiversity Emergency.
