EAGER youngsters have joined forces with council staff in Boston to plant 125 fruit trees for future public use.

Children and staff from St Thomas’s Children’s Centre and pupils from John Fielding Community Special School joined borough council members to plant two new Jubilee Orchards – one at Cuckoo Land allotments and one at Witham Way Country Park.

The council’s portfolio holder for leisure services, parks and open spaces, coun Yvonne Gunter said: “When the trees grow it will look fantastic – I will be here for a juicy apple.”
