Families are being invited to help plant fruit trees at the newly refurbished Kettlewell Lane Park in King’s Lynn.
The event has been organised by West Norfolk Council and Norfolk Wildlife Trust to encourage people to learn about tree planting and sowing wildflower seeds, as well as finding out more about the craft of pollarding willow trees – a pruning technique.
Cabinet member David Pope said: “Thanks to the brilliant efforts of so many people, the hard work of clearing the site of brambles is done. Now it’s time to get involved in the fun part by helping to plant trees and sow seeds which will bring a welcome splash of colour this summer.
“It’s a great way for families to get involved in brightening-up this area and to contribute to the town’s ‘in bloom’ efforts.”
A free lunch will be provided for families registering in advance.
The sessions will be on January 11, February 15 and March 22 from 10.30am to 1pm.
Meet at the end of Kettlewell Lane opposite the Hob in the Well pub. Tools will be provided.
