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.
