The Green Team from March-based CUB (UK) Ltd has been volunteering at Peckover House.

The team got involved with gardening on the grounds of the Wisbech National Trust property as part of its aim to volunteer on projects around the area.

They worked hard in the sunshine, planting elm, oak and walnut trees around the estate and along Harecroft Road.

Holly Redden, SME account manager at CUB, was one of the volunteers and said: “It’s great to get out of the office and in the open fresh air, working on fantastic projects for charities like the National Trust.

“Also to plant trees is an act for future generations to enjoy – one of my favourite sayings is ‘the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is now’ which is exactly what we have achieved.”

Allison Napier, from Peckover, said: “We were very impressed by how well the team got stuck in to the task; they had never planted trees before and did an excellent job. The estate is a rare survival of a rural landscape in the centre of a busy town and so it is imperative that we replace trees which have died or been removed.”

CUB established the Green Team, organised by managing director Louis Fairfax, to help charities and non-profit organisations. Several more projects in the county are planned for later in the year.
