Digging deep for gardeners
2:00pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
YOUNG gardeners at Pebworth First School have been given a boost for their outdoor classroom.
In recognition of their innovative and productive garden, the school has been presented with £1,000 to buy a greenhouse to help their vegetable and flower growing efforts.
The money, presented to the children by the Pebworth in Bloom committee this week, comes from Long Marston’s Global Gathering Windfall Fund which is given to local groups in support of community initiatives.
The school has a well established garden with raised vegetable beds and fruit trees, tended by the children under the watchful eyes of Tracey Lamb and Marian Hay.
Committee leader Jenny McLeish said: “The In Bloom committee has always described Pebworth School’s garden as the jewel in our crown.
“We are delighted to donate this substantial sum which will ensure that horticultural skills are passed on to the next generation.”
