In March 2012, twenty four fruit and deciduous trees were planted here, thanks to generous funding from the Lions Club of Bridport, as part of the Lions' International Tree Planting initiative. Funds to support the management of this area for the first year were also given. The total grant was £500. West Dorset District Council awarded £360 from the Community Fund, which has paid for a craftsman-designed and made noticeboard, and also spring-flowering bulbs, which were planted in the autumn.

On August 8th 2012, representatives of all those involved in this project met together on Jubilee Green. Those present included the Mayor and Mayoress of Bridport, David and Anne Rickard, and three other Town Councillors; Don Morley, President of the Lions Club of Bridport, and seven or eight other "Lions"; Councillor David Tett, representing WDDC; Colin Crabb of Vertiworks, who made the noticeboard; Jane Dibdin, a local resident; Jill Lloyd, Chair of BCOG, and three other BCOG members.
