Dedication is what you need this Saturday (5 December) with the chance to take part in a Guinness World Record attempt to plant as many trees as possible in a single hour.
As part of National Tree Week, events are taking place simultaneously all over the country to help beat the current record of 653,143 trees, and in St.Helens readers can rise to the challenge by joining in at Griffin Wood, the new woodland in Bold, located at the bottom of Hall Lane, off Gorsey Lane.
Volunteers should meet at the woodland at 10.30am to get kitted out with your spade and tree, so that everyone is ready and raring to go for the official BBC Breathing Places record attempt between 11am and noon.
The event at Griffin Wood is organised by The Mersey Forest Team and The Friends of Griffin Wood, with parking available at the adjoining Clock Face Country Park. For a map visit www.griffinwood.blogspot.com
, or alternatively meet at The Leaf Centre (formerly Chester Lane Community Centre) on Four Acre Lane at 10am to be guided to the site by Mersey Forest staff.
If you cannot make it along to the woodland, but do have a garden, you can also take part by planting a tree there. There are six locations across Merseyside where you can even pick up a free tree to plant: see www.bbc.co.uk/breathingplaces
