Children at Theddlethorpe Academy showed their concern for the environment after the Cop26 Climate Change Conference by planting 30 trees donated to them by The Woodland Trust.

They got some extra help from Olympic medal-winning gymnast Sam Oldham, who was visiting the Academy for an exercise session. Sam helped them to plant their first three trees, a Wild Cherry, a Rowan and a Silver Birch.

Members of the Academy’s popular Gardening Club said they were delighted to have Sam’s support as they made sure the saplings were securely planted on the Academy field.

Principal Susan Cook said: “The children were very excited to be able to plant so many new trees and do something for the environment as they show their concern for climate change.”
