Volunteers have finished a tree-planting project at the RSPCA’s wildlife centre in East Winch, a year after it was halted by the tidal surge.

A total of 180 trees have now been planted, which managers hope will help to attract more animals to the site.

Pupils from Howard Junior School initially began the project last December a day before the devastating tidal surge, which led to dozens of orphaned seal pups being brought to the centre for emergency care.

Manager Alison Charles said: “It is wonderful to have the trees finally in place after the unforeseeable delays of last year.

“They are only small at the moment but it is hoped that in time they will make a real difference to the surrounding countryside.”

The trees were planted as part of a nationwide campaign.
