Volunteers will be planting 18 more fruit trees at a special event at Kirkstall Abbey orchard.

A mixture of pears, apples and plums will be planted by the Friends of Kirkstall Abbey Park, a group aimed at improving and running community events at the parkland.

The event runs on Sunday, 5 March at 11am.

A Friends spokesperson advised: “Please wear boots (walking boots are good), dress for the weather, and bring gardening gloves. We will have some spare gloves and tools. However please bring along your own spade and fork if you have them. Wheelbarrows also useful.

“Please bring some lunch and a drink. Families are very welcome – children must be supervised by the accompanying adults at all times.?
