Pupils at a Woodbridge school have been getting to grips with all things green this week as they planted special fruit trees. 

St Mary's Primary School were donated three fruit trees to plant by Woodbridge Town Council earlier this year. 

However, with coronavirus restrictions and lockdowns, the school were unable to plant the trees, with local garden centre Notcutts having looked after them in the interim period. 

This week pupils were finally able to plant the special trees which include one pear tree, an apple tree and a plum tree.

All three trees were placed into the school's prayer garden by pupils from the Year 4 class with help from Ian from Notcutts who was able to provide the students with a little of his own expertise in tree planting.
