They were ably helped by six S4 students from Kirkcudbright Academy who have already planted a number of trees themselves.

As a consequence, a further 30 trees were planted by an excited group of young people.

Claire Pearsall, their class teacher at Kirkcudbright Primary, said: “I was delighted to see the pupils enjoying themselves doing something that is so worthwhile."
