Three people from Bromsgrove have been awarded prestigious awards by the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust for the help they have given to nature.

Students from Bromsgrove Senior, Prep, and Pre-Prep School helped plant fruit trees and hedges

Amongst them were Richard Hare, the Head Groundsman at Bromsgrove School.

During the last five years Bromsgrove School has planted an orchard boasting 50 different Midlands-based varieties of fruit tree, introduced wildlife meadows across all school sites and planted a large number of trees and hedges.

Students from Bromsgrove Senior, Prep, and Pre-Prep School helped plant the apple and pear trees - each a different variety from the Midlands - at Bromsgrove's Prep School.

Head groundsman Richard Hare said: "The school is very lucky to have such amazing grounds, from the sports pitches to the manicured gardens around the buildings.

"There is a fantastic selection of trees with some dating back over 300 years."

"As a department, the grounds team is dedicated to preserving and maintaining the grounds to the highest possible standard."
