Pupils in year 5 and 6 at Ixworth CE Primary School helped the local environmental organisation Green Ixworth to plant 170 trees on the pathway by New Road Ixworth last week.

The trees will help to reduce the noise and pollution from the A143 for local residents.

This was the second time children from the primary school were involved in looking after their local environment.

Roger Spiller from Green Ixworth said: "Thank you to the wonderful children of Eagle Class who helped plant the trees, their enthusiasm was infectious."

Whilst doing a local study in geography last term, they identified the need for more litter bins to improve the local conservation area for wildlife and visitors and lobbied Ixworth Parish Council.

Ted, year 5 said "Everyone was working as a team and everyone let everybody have a go, we took turns so we all enjoyed it."
