Nature lovers are being asked for their help to plant hundreds of trees to help wildlife to flourish at a nature reserve.

Lowestoft-based education programme Butterflies of Britain (BOB) has secured 420 trees to plant at Bonds Meadow in Oulton Broad.

A Scout group and local families and residents have already signed up to take part in the event, but more helpers are needed.

The trees have been supplied by the Woodland Trust and there will be a range of free, tree-themed children's activities to take part in on the day.

Lindsey Andrews, who runs BOB, said: 'Everyone who plants a tree is encouraged to keep popping back and visiting their tree, they are welcome to decorate their tree or add a sign to make their tree special and unique.'

The tree planting party will take place at Bonds Meadow, Sands Lane, Oulton Broad on Saturday, November 26 from 9am to 1pm. Participants are asked to bring a spade. Refreshments will be provided.
