The planting, which took place on Friday 20 January is part of National Trust Cymru’s #GwleddYGwanwyn #BlossomWatch campaign, which commits to provide opportunities for more people to connect with nature, beauty and history, wherever they are in Wales.

As part of the campaign, the conservation charity is working with Members of Parliament and Members of the Senedd across Wales to plant blossom trees in locations of their choice within their constituency or region – helping to develop blossom spaces that respect local setting, spirit of place and bring people and nature together.

Once established, the trees will bloom each spring, bringing the joyful sight of blush-tinted blooms to the nation’s community spaces and encourage a beneficial everyday connection with nature, culture and each other.

Member of Senedd for Swansea West, Julie James MS said: “I am delighted to attend Sea View Primary School today to witness their Eco Committee Pupils’ planting a blossom tree donated as part of the National Trust Cymru’s Blossom Watch Campaign. I hope the whole Seaview Primary School community and the surrounding area will take great pleasure in watching the blossom tree grow throughout the forthcoming years.”
