Events

A walk in the park was our highly-succesful first event of 2022

On Monday 9th May, about 30 CCS members enjoyed a guided walk around Lansdown Crescent Green with Chris Chavasse, Senior Trees Officer of Cheltenham Borough Council.

The walk lasted nearly two hours, during which Chris talked extensively about the individual trees set around this less-trumpeted town-centre green space. Everyone enjoyed the event and just one of the many things we all learnt was how to distinguish sycamores and the various types of maple!

Forthcoming events

An exciting in-town daytime event is being planned for Saturday 18th June, which we hope to be able to tell you more about very soon. So please pencil it into your diary now.

Another guided walk is planned for Monday 4th July – so also pencil that date in your diary now and check back here for the details that will be coming soon.

We will also post further news here of other events that are in the pipeline – just as soon as the details have all been nailed down! So please bookmark this page for future reference.

Chris Chavasse explains how this fungus slowly eats away the inside of its host oak. We learnt that removing the external fruiting elements visible in this shot makes no difference to the progress of the fungus inside the trunk.
