CUMBRIANS have planted more than 3,000 trees as part of a national campaign to mark the centenary of World War I.

The Woodland Trust has given away free trees to community groups and schools who wanted to create a lasting legacy for those involved in the war while also improving their local area.

Trees are still available to schools and local groups such as Scouts, Guides, sports clubs and parish councils, which can apply for a pack from the Woodland Trust website until September 4.
