AN ORCHARD featuring more than 30 apple and pear trees has been created in Morton Stanley Park.
Pupils from St Luke's First and Walkwood Middle Schools joined forces to plant the trees, which include the Worcester Black Pear and Redditch's own Doddin Apple variety.
Funded by The Tree Council's Orchard Windfalls, the project is aimed at encouraging children to get involved in growing fruit trees.
Organiser Alistair Waugh said: "It’s great to give these children the chance to create an orchard in their local park. Many of them visit the park with their families, so it’s important they feel a connection. They’ve made a valuable contribution towards their own future. I’m sure they’ll grow up understanding the importance of fruit trees, a joy that they’ll no doubt pass on to the next generation."
