Wolsingham Primary School Eco Warriors lent their support planting trees on Tuesday March the 7th, followed by a community day on Saturday the 11th of March which saw volunteers from Tow law, Thornley and Wolsingham joining up to plant trees at Thornley Wood. A team of Cubs came all the way from Darlington followed by Durham Wildlife Trust’s Young Volunteers and Tow Law Beavers (once they found their way!). Despite the dark clouds a total of 46 people appeared to help plant the last of the 1,100 trees.
