NURSERY children across the borough are helping the government reach its climate goal by planting hundreds of trees.

Natures Nursery in Ascot will be taking a delivery of 400 trees, which are for free from the Woodland Trust, to promote a "greener future" in childcare settings.

The company All About Children teamed up with the Trust to encourage youngsters and their parents to get involved by helping plant the trees.

Over the next three weeks, the nursery in Ascot will be taking part in the initiative as well as Our Children's House nursery in Bracknell.

Leah Hannon, from All About Children, said: "We are doing this to support the government’s climate goal, by pledging to plant as part of the big climate fightback.

"When our children and families plant a tree they’ll make a real difference to the environment for many years to come! Our Ofsted rated GOOD Natures Nursery and Forest School in Ascot encourages children to learn about the natural world in the hope that this knowledge contributes to a better future for our environment, and conservation.

"Being involved in such a wonderful project with The Woodland Trust has allowed us to teach the children the importance of the environment and how we need to look after the natural world. We have been able to involve our families which is an important start to our nurseries going green."
