Diss Waveney rotarians have been doing their bit to meet a worldwide goal in a bid to improve the environment.

Rotary International president Ian Riseley challenged Rotary members to plant at least one tree each in time for Earth Day on April 22, 2018.

This challenge is a lovely way to involve communities by extending and under-planting existing woods or enhancing parks and open spaces

If all those in the UK and Ireland take part, more than 47,000 trees will be planted.

Diss Rotarians secured 30 saplings from the Woodland Trust, and planted a range of species on the eastern end of Fair Green, Diss.

“This challenge is a lovely way to involve communities by extending and under-planting existing woods or enhancing parks and open spaces,” said Diss Waveney Rotary president, Janet Turner.
