ONE thousand trees are to be planted in Barnsley.

Voluntary Action Barnsley is working in partnership with several organisations including the Woodland Trust, to plant 1,000 across the borough.

If you'd like to get involved, there will be planting events around Stairfoot on 1 February and 8 February between 10am and 3pm.

Voluntary Action Barnsley are still looking for local people and businesses to get involved, so if you can spare any time on either of these days and would like to lend a hand please contact Martin Sugden on 07446 331751.
