A project which will see 1,000 trees planted near Corby is coming to fruition next Saturday (November 29).

Volunteers are now needed to help plant the trees between 9.30am and 3.30pm at the Bulwick Estates, just outside the town.

The project has been organised by Planet Aid UK, a not-for-profit company in Maylan Road, Corby, which asked companies, organisations and individuals to help sponsor the scheme.

Mr Buswell said: “The area has been ploughed, the ground prepared for planting and deer fences have been erected around the perimeter of the site.

“We will be planting a mixture of oak trees, small leaf lime trees and birch trees.

“The planting will begin at 9.30am and will finish at 3.30pm with a half hour break for lunch at about midday.

“We understand that it may not be possible for everyone to commit to the whole day and, if not, people can let us know whether you will be attending the morning or afternoon session.

“Please note that the volunteer day will go ahead regardless of the weather conditions on the day.”

Volunteers are asked to bring, if they have them, gardening gloves, a spade, a packed lunch/thermos flask and wet wipes.

Anyone who can help is asked to phone 01536 400721 or email mbuswell@planetaid-uk.org
