Students plant trees to celebrate Diamond Jubilee
PUPILS from a village school helped create a new nature attraction to commemorate the forthcoming Diamond Jubilee.
PUPILS from Codicote also helped create a new nature attraction to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee.
Codicote Primary School visited Codicote Garden Centre in High Street to help staff celebrate 60 years of The Queen’s reign.
As part of the Woodland Trust’s Jubilee Woods Project, which aims to plant six million trees in 2012, the students helped plant 100 saplings at the centre’s orchard.
Garden centre manager Don Ellwood said: “We’d like to thank the pupils for helping us plant the trees, which included blackthorn, dog rose, hazel and a royal oak, in our orchard.

“We are also extremely grateful to councillor John Warwick of the Codicote Environment Group for all his help with the project.
“He helped to design the orchard and applied for the saplings, which have been used to create natural hedging to attract more wildlife to the area.”
