WINDERMERE Reflections, in partnership with the Civic Trust and the University of Cumbria, is running a tree survey of Ambleside, the results of which will go on to a national database to gain a true picture of tree health throughout the country.

Anyone interested can join ‘Tree-tastic’ next Wednesday (April 23, 1pm-4pm).

Meet on the first floor of Esquires Coffee Shop, Compston Road at 1pm to learn how to identify trees, measure their height and girth and recognise diseases.

Book ahead if possible on 079669-36008 or email claire.

Under-18s must be accompanied by an adult.
