Pupils show green credentials

THESE youngsters showed their green credentials as they got stuck into a conservation day at Puxton Park on Monday.

Children met farmer Mark Slade who helped them plant a variety of native trees, shrubs and bulbs in the park’s grounds.

The park’s managing director Alistair Mead said: “Last year we planted 4,000 trees and shrubs and we want to do the same again this year.

“Our goal is to get the whole site, which is very flat, full of trees in order to attract more wildlife to Puxton Park.”

To continue the park’s half-term activities, youngsters are invited to come along and build their own bird boxes with falconer Gary Lawrence on Saturday.
