More than 200 trees have been planted in Sidmouth’s ‘secret’ forest.
Members of the town’s rotary club joined Sidmouth College students and spent three hours helping to expand the wooded area bordering the Sid Vale Scout Centre, on Salcombe Regis Road.
The volunteers managed to plant numerous hornbeam, holly, field maple and hazel trees which create a whole new grove.
They were planted as part of an on-going partnership between Sidmouth Rotarians and Sidmouth College.
It all began as a ‘Save Planet Earth’ initiative launched by Rotary International. Over the years more than 4,000 trees have been planted in various locations with the help of students, Rotarians and the town Arboretum.
