MORE than 200 trees, shrubs and bushes were planted at Lindley C of E Infant School in November 1988.
Creation of a conservation area was part of a project the school entered in an environmental competition organised as part of the Examiner Pride in Huddersfield campaign.
Pictured planting one of the trees is Lindley Tower Townswomen’s Guild chairman Mrs Kathleen Brown.

Mrs Brown planted the wild cherry tree to mark her organisation’s 30th anniversary.
A whitebeam tree was given by Birchencliffe Playgroup and Dr and Mrs Michael Sills provided an oak. Their daughter Catherine is a former pupil at the school. The other trees were bought with money raised by parents.
Pupils, parents and staff were involved in work on the project which had begun in April. The area included a butterfly garden and play area and two concrete dinosaurs.
