Tree planting

The Friends of Garston Park were out today (Thursday) planting trees on the part of the park at the side of the leisure centre.

Joined by some very keen youngsters from Gilmour Juniors we planted some very young trees as well as some more mature ones and some shrubs.

It was rather wet and windy but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Big thanks to the Woodland Trust and the Mersey Forest for the trees and also to the Mersey Forest for the practical help.

Today was the first of two tree planting sessions which are themselves just part of our work on protecting and improving our wonderful open space.
