SECONDARY school pupils have helped to plant trees last week.

Stamford Queen Eleanor School joined scores of teenagers across the county in planting native trees.

The Royal Horticultural Society has teamed up with The Woodland Trust to plant 200,000 native trees across Britain and about 400 have been allocated through the City of Lincoln Council.

Queen Eleanor School pupils Lewis Baker, Keali Atkinson, Zachory Stacey, Bill Bales and Karl Lanecut helped to cut the turf on Friday last week.

Year 7 pupils will be measuring the height and spread of the trees for their maths lessons.

The school is also hoping to start a small orchard on its allotment by planting eight apple trees.
