Tree planting is rescheduled

Have your say

ORGANISERS of a tree planting ceremony have set a new date after the event was frozen-off.

Woodhouse Mill and Orgreave Community Forum had planned to hold the occasion last Saturday to mark the protection of playing fields off Retford Road.

The site, which was threatened by plans for a new road, has been declared a Queen Elizabeth II Field In Trust, so cannot be built upon.

The new date for the planting of a royal oak tree is at 11.30am on Saturday, February 9.
