RESIDENTS of all ages are invited to take pride in their town.

Ranger Bob Garner is inviting everyone to plant a tree during a two day event.

Knutsford Town Council set out to plant 13,000 trees as part of its nature action plan in March 2020 as part of its commitment to reduce our carbon footprint.

So far, around 1,471 trees have been planted and it is hoped that many more will follow.

As part of the initiative, last year residents joined town ranger Rob at sites around the town to plant a variety of trees.

Dozens turned out with their shovels to take part.

This year, trees will be planted on Tuesday, February 21 and Wednesday, February 22, when schoolchildren will be on half term.

Volunteers are invited to choose which time and location suits them best.

Spaces are limited so people are advised to sign up as soon as possible.

On the first session, trees will be planted in Chelford Road, Brandon Drive, The Heath, Ladies Mile and Westfield Drive.

On the second day, trees will be planted at various sites across Longridge and Southfields.

Anyone interested in taking part can email with your name, contact tel no and how many people you wish to bring along.
