It was planted inside of the Langdale Community Play Park on Brodick Road by the borough council’s Green Spaces Team, alongside a volunteer group led by Hinckley and Rugby Building Society.

A Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council (HBBC) spokesperson thanked all involved who helped volunteer.

In a statement posted on social media, they said: “A huge thank you also to the volunteer group, assisted by Hinckley & Rugby Building Society, who lent a big helping hand.”

Since the start of the new year, the council and community volunteers have been sprucing up many green spaces and parks across the borough with new plants and hedges.

In early January (Monday, 9 January), green-fingered volunteers gave a helping hand in planting 600 new hedge plants and 300 new trees inside of Hinckley’s Wykin Park, located on Wykin Road.

Then, two weeks later, on 26 January, approximately 500 new trees were planted inside of Burbage’s much-loved beauty spot, Burbage Common and Woods.

Some of the trees planted in Burbage Common were birch, cherry, crab apple, and hazel trees.

This means that around 1,400 plants have been planted in total by generous volunteers since then.

Anybody looking to join in and volunteer with planting in any future sessions over the course of the coming months can find out details by simply emailing green.spaces@hinckley-bosworth.gov.uk.
