Chesterfield Panthers have started a tree-planting project as part of a major landscaping scheme at their new ground at Dunston.

Thousands of trees will be planted around the site of the new £2 million ground and a work pary of club volunteers turned out in force to plant and stake the first 600 trees and to give each them of a protective wrapping.

The trees, all native British species,  have been donated by Million Tree Derbyshire as part of their Big Tree Plant scheme and include rowan, wild cherry, hazel, viburnum, field maple, birch and spruce.

Work has also begun on the construction of the first two pitches at Dunston where Chesterfield intend to move from their current home at Stonegravels.
