Year six pupils at Sacred Heart Catholic Voluntary Academy in Sowerby Bridge spent a windy morning planting trees in Stainland.

Children and staff enjoyed helping the local environmental group ‘Treesponsibility’ to plant a woodland strip in Stainland.

As part of their Forest School provision, the school has worked with ‘Treesponsibility’ over a number of years and planted approximately 1000 trees in total.
