Supporters of the Go Wild in Newmarket group were at Studlands Park on Sunday as part of their project to turn the estate’s old orchard into a community wild space.
Rachel Wood of Go Wild in Newmarket said: “We want the Orchard to become a real asset for local people, with fruit trees and bushes, a wildflower meadow, paths to explore and benches to rest on.
“We’re aiming that the site will become a ‘living classroom’, with lots of activities designed to encourage practical hands-on learning. But before any of this can happen, we need help to get the site under control.”
She said the group would be working on the site, next to the BMX track, on the third Sunday of every month from 10am-4pm and residents prepared to help with activities such as cutting and clearing grass and litter picking should turn up with tools such as shears, secateurs and rakes if possible, as well as a packed lunch.
