Central London Forward to plant 493 trees in Tower Hamlets 

As of December 2019, Central London Works (CLW) had supported 493 participants, throughout the 12 central London boroughs into sustainable employment.

As a result, Central London Forward (CLF) pledged to plant 493 trees within 1 of the 12 central London boroughs.  The selected borough would not only be allocated 493 trees, but the CLF team would participate in the tree planting activity as part of their employee volunteering programme and commitment to promoting a sustainable environment.

Whilst this great success was obtained throughout the partnership, the allocation of the trees could only be awarded to 1 borough. The selection of this borough was put to a vote and opened to the members of the Integration Board and the CLW Commissioning Team, who voted to provide the allocation to the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

The Conservation Volunteers have kindly supported CLF by locating a site for the trees and arranging the tree planting activity, which will take place on the 27th February 2020 at Mudchute Park & Farm, Wild pond.
