An Oxfordshire village is fighting to improve air quality and to protect their village from flooding by planting 600 new trees.

East Hanney Parish Council is organising a community tree planting day on Saturday 14 March.

Community groups will plant saplings provided by The Woodland Trust and The Conservation Volunteers.

East Hanney Parish Council said: "We'd like to invite you to plant them together with us to help us to fight climate change, improve air quality, encourage wildlife and protect the village from further flooding."

The Woodland Trust and The Conservation Volunteers have donated hazel, oak, maple, hornbeam, ash, beech, cherry, crab apple, downy birch, hawthorn, holly and goat willow.

The council ask for people to bring their own spades and join in the tree planting.

Food and refreshments will be provided, and the village hall will be open to take a rest from planting saplings.
