VOL­UN­TEERS have planted 400 trees at a Mid­dle­ton na­ture re­serve.

Staff from the Mid­dle­ton branch of global busi­ness ser­vices com­pany Con­cen­trix gave up their time to help plant new saplings at Wince Brook Na­ture Re­serve, which runs along the Wince Brook, a trib­u­tary of the River Irk.

The ini­tia­tive was ar­ranged in con­junc­tion with Rochdale coun­cil and City of Trees, a project aim­ing to trans­form un­der­used wood­land ar­eas by plant­ing a trees. Con­cen­trix helped fund the project by pur­chas­ing the trees. The vol­un­teers from the firm’s con­tact cen­tre on Stake­hill Industrial Es­tate spent a morn­ing at the re­serve with pupils from Alkring­ton Pri­mary School and Stan­ley Road Pri­mary School, pot­ting out the new trees.
