VOLUNTEERS came together to plant trees at a popular attraction.

Students from Pengwern Cambian College in Rhuddlan are part of a Welsh orchard and allotment project at Bodelwyddan Castle.

Jake Preater, Daniel Williamson and Jack Stafford were on hand to plant an oak tree in the grounds.

The trees planted were part of Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (QCC) - an initiative to create a network of forest conservation initiatives across all 53 Commonwealth countries to mark Her Majesty’s lifetime’s service to the Commonwealth.

Kevin Hullock, course leader at the college, said: “This was the first day of tree planting.

“We have an afternoon session every Thursday at the site. The allotments grows and comes on all the time. We have seen it change over the years.

“It is nice to see it progressing.”

Under the programme, charity The Woodland Trust is providing 50,000 trees under the scheme that will be put together into 10,000 packs. Schools and communities can sign up to receive one.
