A primary school has branched out in the biodiversity stakes by planting 30 trees in its grounds.

Ludham Primary School and Nursery has planted cherry blossom, rowan and sycamore trees around the edge of its school field to create places of shade at lunchtimes.

The trees were handed over to the school by the Woodland Trust, following a visit Gayle Amorowson, who told them how the trust could supply free trees to help to achieve biodiversity.

Pupils from the school council joined teaching assistant Emma Krug, who is the school’s garden club leader, in looking for the best places to plant the trees.

Headteacher Heather Delf said: “I think it’s great the children take such an interest in their local environment and are keen to preserve it for future generations. Our garden club is extremely popular and the children learn how to grow and look after a variety of plants.”
