Guru Nanak Woodlands

The Guru Nanak Woodland was planted by a group of Sikh volunteers in November 2020. This act was done as a celebration of the Sikh god message of humanity and oneness.

The woodlands project has united people locally and continues to do this by opening up a new green space for people to enjoy together.

Guru Nanak was the founder of Sikhism and promoted the universal message of One Creator (Ik Onkar) and equality. The woodlands is a place for communities to get together and enjoy their natural surrounding.

The 550 trees were planted during a ‘Bring a Spade’ day where supporters came and helped with the planting.
