MEMBERS of the Acre Gap committee braved the rain to plant 500 new trees around the perimeter of the nature reserve in Sutton on Sea.

The trees including Hazel, Dogwood and Blackthorn as well as the necessary guards and canes were provided by Lincolnshire County Council’s Tree Initiative.

By planting the trees in the form of hedgerows they will contribute to improving the environment as well as providing shelter and food for a vast array of mammals, birds and insects.

As they grow they will also add to the general amenity and appearance of the area which was ravaged by flood in 1953.
