School children joined nature fans to plant five fruit trees in a Suffolk town.

Transition Woodbridge and pupils from Kyson Primary School braved the miserable weather on Saturday to plant three apple trees and two pear trees on the green in Peterhouse Crescent.

A spokesman for Transition Woodbridge said it was a very successful afternoon - despite the rain.

“The children were so motivated and they pitched in to the somewhat muddy work with great enthusiasm,” the spokesman added.

“Fabulous - just as it should be.”

Parents and volunteers were also thanked for their part in the planting.

Residents of Peterhouse Crescent are not asked to be wardens for the trees and the fruits they are hoped to produce.

“If the children’s enthusiasm and excitement is anything to go by, these trees have landed on their feet, so to speak, arriving in Peterhouse Crescent,” the spokesman added.
