Appeals: Common Ground

Common Ground, a charity which helps people to conserve their local landscape, particularly old orchards and trees, is celebrating Tree Dressing Day throughout Britain this weekend. Trees will be decorated with ribbons, lights, numbers and flags; the philosophy behind the decorating is to highlight the environmental and cultural importance of trees.

Common Ground, 45 Shelton Street, London WC2H 9HJ, telephone 071-379 3109.
