Around 60 volunteers helped the council to plant a further 1,200 young trees at Danson Park, Welling, on Saturday, January 27.

Several groups, along with local residents, planted the whips for the final phase of the park’s replanting programme.

The Friends of Danson Park, Rotary Clubs and the Council had together claimed 2,400 trees for the park through the Mayor of London’s Greener City Fund.

All have now been planted in the south of the park.

Cllr Peter Craske, cabinet member for Community Safety, Environment and Leisure also helped, along with Cllr Val Clark, Cllr Louie French and Cllr Nigel Betts.

He said: “Our local community groups have been a huge help in making the best use of the Mayor of London’s Greener City Fund for the benefit of one of Bexley’s biggest and best loved parks.

“Generations will be able to enjoy the natural beauty of Danson Park for years to come.”
