A CHRISTMAS tree has been planted in a Sheffield community by volunteers.

The Friends of Wincobank Hill and local residents planted a blue cedar Christmas tree on Wincobank Common.

Coun Peter Price, a local resident and Jean Ward, member of the Friends group, and Sheffield Woodlands Environment Enhancement Project team volunteers planted the tree.

Residents were invited to celebrate the arrival of the new tree and the switch on of the lights.

A group spokeswoman said: “Although young now, this tree will grow big and strong with TLC from local residents.”
