AS the old proverb says, ‘from little acorns mighty oaks grow’, and never was this more evident than at the half term family tree-planting activity at Trinity.

Organised by the Ribble Rivers Trust, the event

saw parents help their children to plant acorns in seed trays which would then be looked after at the trust’s community tree nurseries in Marsden Park (Nelson), Clitheroe and Preston.

In due course the acorns will grow into saplings and finally into mighty oak trees, which will then be planted in new woodlands across the Ribble area.

Archie Whymark, Trinity’s Climate Action Champion, said, “We were delighted to supply a venue for this event because trees are so important to the environment and the event fitted in with our efforts, as an Eco Church, to care for God’s Earth.”
