Rotary Club of Melton Mowbray Belvoir support global tree planting initiative
The president of Rotary International has issued a challenge to all 1.3 million Rotarians worldwide to plant a tree during 2018 to change the environment for the better.
The Rotary Club of Melton Mowbray Belvoir has taken up the challenge with enthusiastic gusto and encourages other clubs to do the same.

The Trust planted them at their new three acre reserve at Lubenham near Market Harborough.
