Erewash Borough Council is once again giving away a variety of fruit trees to residents this winter.
Stalls will be set up at Long Eaton Market Place on Wednesday 30 November and Ilkeston Market Place on Thursday 1 December. From 10am, residents can collect one fruit tree per household from the following varieties: Scrumptious Apple, Conference Pear and Stella Cherry. Residents will also receive a leaflet with information on their chosen tree and how to care for it.
Leader of Erewash Borough Council, Councillor Carol Hart, said:
“The tree giveaway is an immensely popular event, so I encourage everyone to get to the stalls early in order to claim their free fruit tree! This year sees a great variety of trees that will help to take any garden to the next level or act as a fantastic Christmas gift for a gardening enthusiast.”
There will be 150 trees at each location, 50 of each type. Trees are given on a first come, first served basis for residents of the borough.
