BEECH TREES SURROUNDING CEMETERY AND JUBILEE FIELD CARLTON SCROOP.  What once were hedges are now overgrown, they are now tall getting taller beech trees. Action is needed and in the near future the hedges will be laid. What is hedgelaying? – please click link:  Hedgelaying Benefits        This will future proof the boundary between the cemetery and the Jubilee Field providing a long lasting, wildlife friendly aesthetically pleasing boundary.  This is in tandem with the rolling 5-year Parish Plan. It is intended to maintain the height of the hedges at around 2 metres although it is recognised that initially after the laying process the hedge will be lower and it will take a 2 -3 years to get to the planned height.
