Scarborough RUFC plant 400 trees as part of National Tree Week

The youth section of Scarborough RUFC have planted over 400 native trees to create new woodland for the future.

The planting scheme, carried out as part of National Tree Week, will bring benefits to wildlife and better water quality.

The club’s Chief Executive, Graeme Young, said:

“Not only will this help  with the fight against climate change, but will also give every young member  an identifiable  and lasting reminder of their time as a shrimp, micro, mini or junior player at Scarborough Rugby Club.”

The club is committed to reducing waste , it has a huge solar panel electricity system, a borehole to supply  irrigation water and collects rain water from the building roofs to flush the toilets .

National Tree Week is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration marking the start of the winter tree planting season.
