A WIRRAL community group has planted 421 trees as part of a green-fingered eco-project.
The Woodland Trust donated the trees to the Friends of Bidston Hill for their educational community trees project.
The trees were planted into the Forest School classroom area on Bidston Hill ready for “Stream Education, Forest Schools” to start in April 2012.
The school project has seen the Friends work with various groups to get children and members of the community involved in looking after their environment.
Veolia staff (from Hazardous Waste Services sites around the North West) and volunteers from Wirral Mind, as well as Mike Burratti, Wirral’s arson reduction officer, and Lynn Struve, Wirral’s eco-schools co-ordinator, are just some of the people who worked together on the scheme.
The Friends also planted a Special Jubilee Oak so it can settle in ready for the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations in June. Call 0151 653 9332 to get involved.
