Children have been helping to make a difference in their community.

The school group enjoyed their time out in the Dene.

Student Lee Whitfield said: “Acorn planting was awesome. I love being outside and being with nature so it was great fun doing this with the whole class.

“I’m looking forward to going back to the Dene to see how our oak trees are doing.”

Groundwork are helping in the regeneration of the Dene as part of the CELL Big Local environmental initiative.
