Tree-mendous effort by pupils in Steeton and Eastburn

Children from Steeton and Eastburn primary schools have planted trees around the Community Hub in Steeton.

Youngsters planted six species – including rowan, whitebeam and silver birch – at the Skipton Road site as part of National Tree Week.

Steeton-with-Eastburn Parish Council received a grant for the trees from national campaigning partnership the Tree Council.

The planting, organised by the parish council and Bradford Environmental Action Trust, was to replace trees lost when the hub was built.

The parish council is seeking money to rebuild the site’s play area next year, with new equipment for two to 12-year-olds.

Tree Council director-general, Pauline Buchanan Black, said she was delighted with the work of the school children.

She said: “It emphasises the need to keep up the diversity of species in the area.”

Parish council chairman, Councillor David Mullen, said he was sure the replacement trees will be enjoyed by users of the Hub and the play area.
