Trees are planted in Great Bardfield
- Credit: submitted
Trees have been planted in the middle of Great Bardfield, on the grass area opposite the primary school.
Julia and Andrew Collins and Louisa Ruthven dug them into the ground. Normally a tree planting occasion would involve more members of the community but Julia said they had been limited because of the Covid pandemic and the need for social distancing.
Julia said it seemed a good spot as it was just grass and the trees will make the area look nicer.
She said: "My husband met the parish clerk and two of the parish councillors and agreed where they would plant the trees."
Money from three sources has made the tree planting possible - the Music in the Garden event, the parish council, and a donation.
