A group of residents and volunteers took part in a community hedge planting event on Sunday in a bid to protect open ground at Aubrey Drive in Sudbury.
Nine volunteers from environmental group Woods Around Town were joined by 21 residents, who planted a 100-metre stretch of land with hedgerow plants in just over an hour.
Woods Around Town chairman Andrea Harrison said the event, which was run in conjunction with Suffolk County Council and Chilton Parish Council, was a great success.
“It was lovely to see so much enthusiasm among the residents and young children,” she said. “Community spirit in a shared objective was very much alive.”
