There was no weeping as Keighley residents planted willow in Lund Park this week.

People living around the park came together for the planting session with horticultural specialist Pippa Chapman.

Jo Horrox, from Lund Park Community Group, said some of the willow will be used to make dens and other structures.

She added: “The idea is also that we will harvest the willow every year and make lanterns for our annual lantern parade.”

Pippa, from Steeton-based Those Plant People, also showed residents how to plant vegetables, which they could take home to grow.

Tuesday’s session was financed by the Community First fund.
