Green-fingered volunteers have planted 5,000 daffodil bulbs alongside a public footpath.

Members of Beighton Environment Group carried out the planting sessions on the route leading up to the Rolling Acres playground.

Daffodils need to be planted in autumn to allow them to bloom in spring - meaning the group’s efforts will allow the footpath to be brightened up early next year.

The environment group aims to look after the local area through a series of initiatives, including hedge-laying, litter-picking, organising floral displays and carrying out bulb planting.

Among the members of the group to take part in the bulb planting were chairman Don Ellks, along with Michael Spur, Keith Flint, Martin Hall, Kay Ashton and Maureen Ellks.
