David Bellamy helps Tardebigge First School pupils Katie-Lou and Ethan Medlicott to plant trees as part of the national Tree Appeal scheme. The school received 100 trees and hedging plants in the Trees for Schools campaign, and Ethan and Katie-Lou also brought in their own tree to plant. Tardebigge was nominated by customers of nationwide print firm printing.com, which has sponsored 100,000 trees across the country, and Mr Bellamy, as patron of Tree Appeal, has visited schools across the UK.  After taking an assembly, he helped the pupils plant the trees at the school and adjacent Community Hall. “As an Eco Green Flag school we were delighted to be chosen, and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the project,” said headmistress Julie Cutler.

At the same photocall the man from The Village spotted these two photographers from local freebie papers having to shin over a gate to get back to their cars. How ladylike, girls!
