SNAPSHOT - Sing-a-long

Over 50 school children gathered to sing alongside musician and songwriter Billy Bragg last weekend, to mark the successful conclusion of a campaign led by the Woodland Trust to preserve an area of beauty in Dorset. Named the Allington Hill extension, the woodland conservation charity, with the help of local newspaper the Bridport News, raised over £30,000 to secure the future of 11 acres of endangered land.The piece of land, which borders the coastline of Dorset, surrounds Allington Hill, which has a wide variety of native flora and fauna and is a prime area for wildlife. The money raised has gone towards the purchase of the land by the trust, which will plant thousands of native trees.The local kids wrote and sang their song entitled Allington Trust to mark the occasion.
