A HEDGE which will become a haven for birds, insects and mammals has been planted by the council’s parks team, with a helping hand from students.

Created from 600 trees of 12 species, the hedge has been planted along the southern boundary of Langmeads Field recreation ground in East Preston.

Youngsters from Angmering School and East Preston Junior School helped plant the trees, 500 of which were provided by Arun District Council and a further 100 from The Conservation Volunteers’ Free Trees for All scheme with OVO Energy.

The students were helped by Martyn Burkinshaw from the Council’s Parks team along with volunteers from the Friends of Langmeads Field and Arun Biodiversity Forum, along with councillor Terence Chapman, Arun District Council’s cabinet member for environmental services.

The students were also taken on a tour of the site to look at some of the points of conservation interest within Langmeads Field.
