A Moorlands community has banded together to carry out a tree planting project.

The recent tree planting at Forsbrook Cemetery, which was organised by Forsbrook Parish Council, was attended by councillors, Blythe Bridge WI, Forsbrook Primary Year Five and Springcroft Year Five children.

A total of 600 trees were planted which the council had applied for through the Woodland Trust.

Parish councillors and the council’s handyman Martin Warrilow of MW Gardening dug all the holes and assisted the children in planting and securing the trees.

Parish council chairman and district councillor Ian Herdman said: “We are delighted to be able to extend this opportunity to local children in shaping the future of the cemetery and taking an active part in combating climate change.

This in addition to the bee hives which are situated in the cemetery really shows how important the parish council takes the climate change emergency.”

Cllr Herdman added: “The gift of four trees from the Women’s Institute and plaque to commemorate the Queens Jubilee is a fantastic gesture and something that will serve as a reminder of this monumental event for generations to come.
