Green-fingered pupils digging their new garden

Rugby Editorial 5th Apr, 2024   0

GREEN-fingered pupils at a Rugby primary school are digging their new garden.

Rokeby Primary School enlisted the help of housebuilders Barratt and David Wilson Homes to renovate its garden for the children’s wellbeing and outdoor learning.

Having completed the project, the housebuilders have donated a number of children’s wheelbarrows, gardening sets and benches to the environmentally-minded pupils.

The school’s Headteacher Vicky Allan said: “We are extremely grateful for the generous donations to enable us to make this wonderful garden. This garden will be enjoyed by our children for many years to come.”

The homebuilders turfed the garden and installed a number of sleepers for raised planters.

Site Manager Ashley Doyle, who supervised the project, said: “We’ve enjoyed working with Rokeby Primary School to enhance its outdoor space.

“We wanted to make sure the garden would become a valuable space for the pupils and we hope our donation of gardening equipment will serve them well in the warmer weather.”
