Planting the seeds for a greener Pollards Hill

The National Trust will be bringing their special brand of nature and nurture to Pollards Hill as they launch a year-long programme on the estate.

To launch this exciting initiative, we hosted residents, Harris Academy students and the National Trust at a tree planting event within the estate.

The event gave residents the chance to get involved and learn more about the National Trust’s plans for Pollards Hill. It marks the start of greater community engagement and rounds off a successful regeneration programme.
