What is Saplings?

The Trust's Saplings Sessions have been going for over a decade and are weekly sessions that take place during the summer holidays. They provide the opportunity for local children, aged 5 to 12, to get together and enjoy fun, educational and challenging outdoor activities that also boost their health and well-being.
