Some sad news from our Grounds Team today. Sometime between Thursday afternoon and today, individuals have stolen up to 60 of the young trees that were donated and planted along the club boundary back in the Autumn. 

The theft has been reported to the police and we are reviewing CCTV footage.

In the meantime, please be on the lookout for anybody trying to sell or plant a job lot of trees.  Now they have been lifted they will probably die in this hot weather with little chance that they will take again if replanted.


Read the story of how the trees were originally donated to the club by the CGI Group as part of the government's No Planet B” initiative, which is aimed at tackling the UK’s carbon emissions:
