A HORTICULTURE group is inviting people to go on a coach trip to the National Memorial Arboretum.

The trip has been organised by Upton in Bloom and a coach will leave Hanley Road car park at 9.30am on Sunday, April 2.

Tickets cost £12 per person and can be bought at The Launderette, in New Street, Upton.

The Arboretum, in Alrewas, Staffordshire, was built in 1988 as a tribute to service men and women.

The 150 acre site has over 50,000 trees and nearly 300 memorials.
