Eco-minded pupils create sensory garden

A SENSORY garden has been created in Shipston by eco-minded pupils.

The garden at new Weavers Hall development on Hornsby Close took pupils at Shipston High School over two years to create.

They designed the space containing native and wildlife-attracting trees and shrubs, bulbs and grassed areas, to enhance the environment and encourage diversity.

The garden was unveiled by mayor Dan Scobie.

Linfoot Country Homes chairman Ken Linfoot said: “The pupils and teachers who made up the team were very enthusiastic, and worked excellently with our landscape architect to create a space which offers year round appeal and encourages wildlife.

“We enjoyed visiting the school and working with the students and understand they found the project interesting and worthwhile. We’re delighted that the finished result will both benefit the environment and give pleasure to local residents. I’m looking forward to seeing the garden next year when the plants are more well-established.”
