Village to create a jubilee woodland

VILLAGERS are to create a community woodland to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The Woodland Trust will be holding the event from 2.30pm until 4.30pm on Sunday, March 11, in Gretton.

People are invited to go along and plant a tree to enhance the new Diamond Wood on the edge of Gretton, off Kirby Road near to Harringworth Road.

A special tree will also be planted to celebrate the life of Katherine Hartley.

Villagers who go along are asked to wear suitable footwear and warm waterproof clothing.

Spades will be provided but people who have one should take it along.
