The Lord Mayor was joined at Lickey Hills last month by members of the Civic Society and the Lickey Hills Society, together with some members of the general public, to plant the last few of the 25 new specimen trees in the Arboretum area below the Visitor Centre. The Lickey Rangers had enlisted the support of their Tuesday volunteers to do a lot of the hard work in advance, digging the holes and pre-planting some of the trees, in what proved to be extremely wet and muddy conditions.
