Homebuilders help primary school plant seeds for the future

Rugby Editorial 15th Feb, 2024   0

HOW does your garden grow? Very well, if you’re a pupil at Rokeby Primary School – thanks to homebuilders who dug in to help the school plant seeds for the future.

Barratt and David Wilson Homes have stepped in to complete a range of renovation projects at the Anderson Avenue school.

As part of the works, the homebuilders – based nearby at the Ashlawn Gardens and Elborough Place developments – have turfed the garden and implemented a number of sleepers for raised planters.

Site Manager Ashley Doyle managed the overall project and supervised the works of the contractors as they helped to freshen up the garden.




Headteacher Vicky Allan said: “We are extremely grateful to Barratt and David Wilson Homes for the generous donations to enable us to make this wonderful garden.

“This garden will be enjoyed by our Rokeby children for many years to come.”


Mr Doyle said: “We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to support a fantastic project in our local community, and it’s been great to help Rokeby Primary School bring its vision to life.

“We’re always open to lending a helping hand to those close to our developments, and we hope the raised planters and landscaped area will allow the children to spend more time in the school’s garden.”
