PUPILS, teachers and members of the community pulled on their wellies to brighten up Milford Haven School's grounds earlier this week.

On Tuesday (January 22), Year 7, 8 and 9 children planted around 60 sapling trees as part of the Make a Difference Day.

Around 20 youngsters, plus members of the town's youth service, parents and school staff got stuck in to create a 'tree corridor' that will enhance local wildlife, and provide a beautiful sight for future generations.

They were joined by Mayor of Milford Haven Cllr Rose Gray, Anthony and Margaret Williams of the Royal British Legion Milford Haven, and a representative from the Family Foundation, which secured funding for the trees.

Gemma Baker, the school's community engagement officer, said: "We had fantastic parent engagement and some beautiful support from local residents too.

"We have devised a calendar of activities called 'Make A Difference' days.

"These will be planned events to positively impact the school and the town of Milford Haven, and all of these days will provide the opportunity for community involvement.

"We have a lot of parents, carers and community members keen to support the school, and so we are looking for ways to facilitate that involvement and also strengthen the bonds between the school and local residents."

Next week a group of students will be making bird feeders and bird boxes that will be put up on school site and also around the town to support the local wildlife
