Hardy volunteers turned out with spades at the ready to plant 1,400 trees for Hayfield’s Platt’s Wood Project. On December 6, adults and children alike dug deep to plant the trees at the site at the end of Oaks Avenue, off Ridge Top Lane.

Through the Platt’s Wood Project, descendants of the local Platt family are creating a community woodland of five acres. The aim is to develop a woodland for community use, which includes shaded and open areas, biodiversity, a wildflower meadow, paths and seating.
