PUPILS from a Davyhulme primary school joined forces with a councillor to help make the area a greener place.

Davyhulme East Ward’s Cllr Lisa Cooke has been planting trees in a bid to improve the environment and enlisted the help of youngsters from Our Lady of the Rosary RC school, on Davyhulme Road.

Head teacher Susan Malloy said: “Our Lady of the Rosary is delighted to be involved in this tree planting project which is improving our local environment.”
