VOLUNTEERS headed out with spades to plant a new hedgerow at St Paul's Church , Wokingham last month.

The Tree Succession Project has seen the church awarded 420 Woodland Trust hedgerow saplings, chosen because they will benefit wildlife.

They have been planted throughout the day, along the boundary of the churchyard and land owned by British Rail. Andy Clark, who co-ordinates work in the churchyard, said: "We are particularly pleased to have been awarded the saplings.

This was the first major replanting in the churchyard for many years.

The new saplings will grow to form an enriched hedgerow providing improved wildlife habitats, enhancing the biodiversity of the site."Church members and community groups including the Wokingham District Veteran Tree Association, Wokingham Horticultural Association and the Wokingham Society and the local Scouts were among those who joined in the planting.

The Tree Succession project is one of a number of events taking place during 2014 to mark the 150th anniversary of the church's consecration.
