School’s family tree planting event


MORE than 150 trees were planted in a family tree planting event at Cherry Tree Primary School, Lymm.
Almost 100 people attended the event and helped to plant the trees in the school grounds. With the expert help of Richard and Imogen Sawyer from Lane End Cottage Garden, families helped to plant a huge variety of trees along the edges of the school playing field.
Richard and Imogen shared their expert knowledge with children and families showing them how to correctly plant various different trees including oak, beech, pine and fir trees. The school PTA provided drinks and refreshments.
Head teacher Helen Graham said: “We were delighted that so many of our families came along to support our tree planting event and we hope that they will enjoy watching the trees grow during their time at primary school.
“We are incredibly grateful to Richard and Imogen from Lane End Cottage Garden for all their help and support. The children and their families not only really enjoyed the event but went away having learned about different types of tree and how to correctly plant them.
“Caring for our environment is important and we did that while having fun and working together to improve our school. It was wonderful to see families working together to plant different trees and see how proud they were at their achievement at the end of the day.
“At Cherry Tree we believe that it is very important to teach children about the importance of the environment and every child at our school takes part in allotment classes to learn how to grow and look after plants. This was an excellent opportunity to encourage all the family to get involved.”
Grace, age 4, from the reception class said: “I took my spade and planted seven trees with my daddy and my friends. I’m going to watch them grow every play time.”
