On Thursday April 11th, children and staff from the adventure playground planted hawthorn saplings in Burngreave cemetery with members of the Friends of Burngreave Cemetery. When grown they will provide spring forage for the cemetery bee colonies.

The trees, along with a number of beech saplings were donated by Octopus Energy, as part of a countrywide environmental campaign.
