Ardentinny Conservation & Heritage Group
Coronation Wood is a small area in the village which was planted in 1953 by the children of the village to commemorate the Queen’s Coronation. Over the years the wood had become neglected and inaccessible. The group decided to regenerate the area and return it to lovely spot, which resulted in original planters being invited to return to a very successful memory day. A record of all the trees and plants has been taken, and any subsequent plantings have been with native species, primrose, snowdrops, hawthorn etc. The group wishes to continue to develop the area in a sympathetic and eco-friendly way to encourage wildlife. The wood is only one of the projects which the group is involved in to try to make the village a better place. Other projects include reinstating the Nature Trail, tidying around the Laird's Grave, beach cleans, and planting tubs throughout the village with edible flowers and herbs that people can pick.
