NORTH Kent nature enthusiasts have the chance to be part of a world record attempt.

The RSPB has teamed up with BBC Breathing Places and Guinness World Records to try to plant more than 653,000 trees in an hour.

In order to achieve this incredible target, the charity is inviting as many people as possible to its reserve at Cliffe Pools for 11am on Saturday.

The Tree o'clock challenge will be conducted by volunteers across the country. It will form part of a major project to enhance Cliffe Pools, planting hawthorn and blackthorn to landscape the car park and provide shelter for scrubland bird species such as the chaffinch.

Those wishing to take part should arrive at Cliffe Pools between 10.30am and 11am. For more details, ring 01634 222480 or visit www.rspb.
