Pic: The tree planting at Rainbow Gardens
The Lutterworth Rotary Club has this month supplied and planted an oak tree in the Rainbow Gardens.
On Saturday, October 9, the club planted the tree on land alongside the Lutterworth College car park, formally the Rainbows Nursery.
The tree is the first of many British trees and shrubs to be planted on the site. The area is being used for a regeneration project for educational purposes and to create an ecological nature garden.
Sherrier School and Lutterworth College students are engaged in the project as part of their school curriculum, which involves the environment and climate change.
The children selected an oak tree as it is symbolic in UK culture and will mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Year in 2022.
Lutterworth College Business School’s Laura Kendrick and Sherrier School Governor Mark Janssens are spearheading the project, which will provide a natural habitat for wildlife in the centre of Lutterworth.
