South West London Branch of Youth Organisation Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association will plant around 2,000 trees next week.

The group, including young Muslims from Merton, Wandsworth and Sutton, will be at Old Lodge Farm on Sunday January 19 to help boost efforts to improve the country’s environment.

The project forms part of the association’s national tree planting initiative that has seen more than 50,000 trees planted in the previous year nationwide.

Fabulous, practical action by our Muslim brothers & sisters at the Ahmaddiya mosque, based in Morden! As fellow worshippers in an Abrahamic faith, we Christians in Merton should welcome this fine initiative to honour and protect God's creation. Top idea, lads & ladies! At Wimbledon Green Churches, we'd love to have closer contacts with you and with the WIN network of Islamic respecters & protectors of nature. Do get in touch! PS Have you told Merton Council's salaried tree specialist about your initiative?

Great news - we could do with more of this sort of attitude from all social groups, not just young or religious people.
