Volunteers have been planting 200 new saplings in Cripplegate Park, in a bid to improve air quality and to make sure the city centre remains clean and green for generations to come.

Members of Taskforce, a volunteer group which gives men with learning disabilities the chance to get involved with positive activities in the community, planted hawthorn, hazel, dogwood and blackthorn saplings in the park last week.  The group also carried out an extensive litter pick in the area.

“Trees add greatly to the appearance of our city, and they are really loved by local people,” says Cllr Joy Squires, Chair of Worcester City Council’s Environment Committee.
