Councillor Margaret Handley the Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe joined Richard MacRae on Ilkeston Road Recreation Ground.
Children from Wadsworth Fields Primary School gardening club helped the Mayor to plant three new Trees.
Richard MacRae explained to all present how after recieving a grant from Greenwood Community Forest for over £400 this was possible and how it was important for local children to be part of this event.
Everyone had a great time and Stapleford Community Group are now looking forward to further projects in the future to keep bringing improvements to Stapleford.
Thanks to Austen Blakemore for donating his time to take the pictures.
