Green connection!

24 October 2011

Pupils from West Everton's Faith Primary School in Liverpool have teamed up with volunteers from The Friends of Everton Park to plant trees to improve their neighbourhood and contribute to a high profile new walking and cycling route.


The five ornamental fruiting and flowering trees will brighten the school's grounds and also add greenery to the Sustrans' Connect2 route down Prince Edwin Street. Working through Liverpool City Council's Transportation department, the route will provide safer road crossings, traffic calming, lighting and signage – giving residents safer routes to travel by foot or bike to and from workplaces and learning centres.


The tree planting was coordinated by The Mersey Forest, and funded by Liverpool PCT as part of the city's Decade of Health and Wellbeing. As well as creating a healthier neighbourhood, the tree planting also helped pupils to learn more about the natural world.


Ben Greenaway, Green Streets coordinator for The Mersey Forest, said: "These young people now know the difference between a berried tree for wildlife and a fruiting tree for humans!"


To get involved in future events to brighten West Everton, contact The Mersey Forest at or on 01925 816217.

Hi John, Liverpool City Council were involved, but not via the ranger service, since the planting was in the school's grounds.
