The Bar Sinister , Puna 1917 by A.S.H.Hinchliffe , William’s maternal grandfather . a novel recounting his WW1 experiences and thoughts.
Will started to cut Christmas Trees at Mucklestone last week , Pupils from Hugo Meynall School, Loggerheads, ‘went down to the woods’ to choose and cut their tree. – an 8ft Nordman Fir.
Nursery is open daily to the general public between 10am and 4pm (in winter) and grows a variety of types of Christmas tree sold at both Mucklestone Nurseries and East Northdown Farm in Margate. The trees are grown sustainably in the woodlands which are managed for their biodiversity under a woodland improvement scheme. Firs (Abies) species grow grown wild in mixed broadleaved forests around the nnorthern hemisphere, in the shaded understory, until a gap appears in the tree canopy above. Will’s growing system is designed to mimic nature’s natural growing environment for the Firs.
William Friend said, ‘We have started cutting our trees ready for Christmas. The wet season has suited them, and they are look great. We give Christmas trees to our local schools and churches, in both Mucklestone and Northdown, and supply a wide range of local friends, nieghbours , customers and businesses in both areas, who like to buy one of our ‘home grown’ tree from us each year.
