GREEN-FINGERED volunteers got stuck into a project in Somerset this weekend.
Members of Wedmore Green Group and extra helpers gathered at the site of a new community woodland to help plant trees.
The quarter-of-an-acre site was donated to the group by an anonymous donor so they could build a woodland for the whole village to use.
Green group member Rob Richley said: "We got almost half the trees done but we still need more volunteers for this weekend.

"If everyone brings a spade and joins in, we should complete the project by the end of the weekend.
"We were planting on Saturday and Sunday this weekend, and although it rained a little on Saturday morning we had a good turn out. At any one time we had about 15 people helping."

The group is building the woodland for residents in the area to take their families to and go bird-watching. More than 250 native trees are being used in the woodland.
Anyone wishing to help can follow directions to the woodland from the bottom of Goosehams Lane. Volunteers will be planting from 10am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
