Sunday, 6 November saw over 400 Archers return to the Kynren site to bed in their roots for Season Two – as they took part in the Big Kynren Tree Plant.
We are aiming to recruit 1,500 volunteers for Kynren 2017, so the day was an opportunity for Archers to bring along friends or family members, to introduce them to Kynren and Eleven Arches and encourage them to join our wonderful family of volunteers and get involved in next year’s show.
Although the weather was not on our side, with strong winds and heavy rain, the 400-strong team planted 1,500 trees. Each tree was labelled with a name or message so that they can be identified as they grow and create a legacy for the people who helped plant them.
We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who came along. We are looking forward to seeing both the trees and our team of Archers grow and blossom throughout the coming years.
Volunteer recruitment for Kynren 2017 will launch later this month. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear about it.
