Members of the community are being encouraged to come along and help create a willow tunnel at Foresters Park in Tranent tomorrow.

Organised by Tranent Wombles at the group’s Forest Garden project in the park, guests will be joined by Edinburgh-based artist Natalie Taylor to help create the seven-meter tunnel.

The project is being run in partnership with East Lothian Play Association (ELPA) and the Heugh Community Garden.

The Wombles received a grant of £10,000 from the Tyne and Esk Rural Communities Development Fund to create a small forest garden at Foresters Park.

The Green Belters project has already seen turf cut and rolled in the garden and stumps put in place.

Henry Mathias, chair of the Wombles, said: “Work is progressing really well at the garden and we are so grateful to the community for their support.

“On Friday, people can come along and get involved. It will be a community effort to make the tunnel so there will be a chance for everyone to get involved.

“We have big plans for the garden including growing plants and fruit trees. We want this to be a beautiful green space for Tranent.”

Refreshments will be available at the garden with all guests welcome from 1pm.

Mr Mathias also thanked Archerfield Walled Garden for the donation of the materials to make the tunnel.
