Volunteers from Friends of Ingrebourne Valley and Hornchurch Country Park plant 450 trees
Nature-loving volunteers took to Hornchurch Country Park at the weekend to spruce up the area.
Friends of Ingrebourne Valley and Hornchurch Country Park’s first “working group” met on Sunday, December 2, to plant 450 saplings and clear litter.
Twenty-four volunteers, including green-fingered cubs from 1st South Hornchurch, turned up to help.
“All who attended had a very enjoyable time and are now skilled tree planters,” said the group’s Bob Rand.
The Friends group formed earlier this year and has been working with council staff Carlos Iszak and Katy Haines to improve the park.
