Help plant a tree and join in the family fun at the Northend Community Orchard on Saturday.

Dacorum Borough Council is inviting people of all ages to come down to the site of the new community orchard, opposite Leverstock Green Tennis Club, in Hemel Hempstead, between 11am and 3pm.

The plan is that, once the trees are established, they will provide free fruit for local residents.

There will be lots of free fun for all the family on Saturday, with activities including a folk band, a smoothie bike, face painting and a free prize draw with prizes including a Sony digital camera, a smoothie maker and chocolates,

Wear sturdy boots if you fancy joining in the digging. Tools and gloves will be provided. Visit www.dacorum.gov.uk/orchards
