Primary school children have helped to brighten up the North Dorset Trailway by planting snowdrops.

Thirteen children from Sturminster Newton Nursery School armed with bulbs, trowels and watering cans, spent a day with Dorset Countryside Rangers.

The children are regular users of the trailway and asked if they could plant snowdrops there, a North Dorset District Council spokesman said.

The six-mile (10km) track follows the old Somerset and Dorset Railway line.

It runs through many of North Dorset's towns and villages.

Mrs Sherwood -Taylor, of the nursery, said: "It's great to be able to take the children out into the countryside and plant bulbs for everyone to enjoy and we hope to plant more in the future".
