Tree and shrub planting has taken place at The Street in Scarborough with a number of organisations taking part.

The event brought together learners and staff from Futureworks with representatives from Raincliffe Wood Enterprise and shrubs were supplied by The Woodland Trust.

Sarah Thornton of Futureworks, which supports young people into the world of work, said: “Young people planted the trees and will tend to them to make sure that they flourish.

“We pride ourselves on getting involved with projects that benefit the community and our young people.

“As part of our one-day-a-week community work we do with young people to help them back to work, we are always looking for new projects that will help the community.

“So if you have a project that you think our learners can help with, please call us and we will be happy to talk about it with you.”

Enquiries should be made to Sarah on (01723) 449616.

John Bradley, of Raincliffe Wood Enterprise, said: “The event went really well. There were a mixture of bushes, including hawthorn, and they look great.

“The idea was to enhance the landscaping outside The Street and it has worked well.”

He thanked the Woodland Trust for the shrubs and The Street for all their support.
