Cleethorpes volunteers are needed to help plant almost 20,000 trees in North East Lincolnshire to mark last year's historic Diamond Jubilee.

Over the coming months, three sites in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Immingham will begin their transformation into woodlands as part of the Woodland Trust's countrywide Jubilee Woods project.

A number of community tree planting days will encourage residents to play their part in creating over 25 hectares of new woodland in the borough.

The events will take place on Saturdays from 11am to 1pm at:

The Saltings, Westward Ho, Grimsby, DN34 5DX on January 19 and January, 26.

Coomb Briggs, Habrough Road, Immingham, DN40 3QG on February 2 and February, 9.

Cleethorpes Country Park, DN35 0AG on February, 16 and February, 23.

In total five woodlands are being created in the area.

Spring Street woodland in Immingham is partially planted following a number of community tree planting days and school planting events. The final woodland to be planted will be Freshney Park, Grimsby.

Councillor Mick Burnett, portfolio holder for tourism and culture and deputy leader of the council, said: "Everyone is welcome to be an amateur gardener for the day and take part in creating an area of woodland that will be a lasting tribute to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

¨"Planting the saplings may be a muddy job but extremely rewarding. Volunteers will be able to watch these woodlands mature over the years.€¨

"We are looking forward to seeing everyone there; families are welcome as are community groups. You don't need to register your interest, just turn up. I guarantee each of these community events will be a fun day and a memorable one."

Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult. Volunteers will need to wear suitable footwear and warm, waterproof clothing. Volunteers are asked to bring a spade if they have one.
