Volunteers have planted thousands of trees on the borders of Ashton Playing Fields.

“Throughout November, nearly 8,000 trees were planted by corporate volunteers and a community payback scheme with the Ministry of Justice. A further 4,300 whips were planted by hundreds of local residents on a public planting day in December. The trees will grow to support wildlife and help block noise and pollution from the M11,” said a spokesperson for UK charity Trees for Cities, which organised the event in partnership with Vision RCL.
