Sawbridgeworth joined in the 'Big Climate Fightback' when 15 trees were planted at the Bullfields Centre.

The 'five rowan, five hazel and five crab apples', will form part of the Queen’s Green Canopy marking her Platinum Jubilee and were donated by the Woodland Trust, whose Big Climate Fightback initiative aims to get the UK involved in planting 50 million trees to help combat the climate crisis.

Committee members from the Sawbridgeworth Young People’s Recreational Centre (SYPRC) planted the trees with the help of local ecology expert Bob Reed, who offered his advice and guidance, as well as Hertfordshire county councillor Eric Buckmaster.

"We're also very grateful for the clear support of local residents in this and to be able to help contribute to a network of trees across the UK and the green legacy in honour of the Queen's service.”
