Volunteer tree wardens are being sought to help look after the trees in a Breckland town.

Thetford Town Council are looking for people who want to play a vital role in protecting its many trees.

People will be asked to report signs of pests, disease and vandalism and would be expected to walk around and report any problems, especially after storms.

As the role develops, the council anticipate the wardens will have the opportunity to get involved in planting new trees.

A spokesman for the council said: 'Volunteering as a tree warden is a great opportunity for residents to play a part in conserving and enhancing local trees and woodlands in the town.
