GREEN-fingered residents of all ages gave up their time to plant more than 600 bulbs in their village.

Around 25 volunteers planted the tulip, daffodil and crocus bulbs along Boars Tye Road, Broadway and Silver Street in Silver End.

The Greener Silver End Group organises various events in the village including action days to help develop the community woodland off Temple Lane.

The next stage of the plan will be to install a hand forged iron bench around one of the oak trees there.

New volunteers to support the running of the group are always welcome.
