GREEN fingered pupils from a Fladbury school have helped to plant trees as part of a community project.

Last Tuesday (December 8) children from Fladbury CE First School took part in the Fladbury Green Charter group’s work to enhance the village’s landscape and increase biodiversity.

The trees were given to the community group by the Conservation Volunteers organisation as part of their ‘I Dig Trees’ scheme.

Over the week 150 trees were planted as part of the project, with help from the local Scout group and villagers to improve the environment in Fladbury, not just for the wildlife, but also to boost the views on a popular walk.

Peter Bugg, Chairman of the Green Charter group in Fladbury, said: “We just want to improve the landscape and the environment of the village, not just for the wildlife, but for the people as well.”
