GREEN-fingered kids at a primary school in Hillmorton have been busy growing their own vegetables following a donation from a local housebuilder.
Pupils at Abbots Farm Junior School were tasked to grow their own produce after Redrow Midlands donated gardening gloves, soil, vegetable seeds and a vegetable trug.
Headteacher Gemma Webb said: “The children have loved putting their gardening gloves on and keep eagerly tending to their vegetables each morning. We’re looking forward to putting our home-grown vegetables to good use in a few months’ time and I know pupils can’t wait to sample our produce.”
Elaine Cartwright, Sales Director at Redrow Midlands – which is currently building new homes in Houlton – said: “We all remember marvelling at seeing something grow for the first time when we were children, and so we wanted to build on this curiosity by nurturing a passion for growing produce among Rugby youngsters.
“We look forward to seeing Abbots Farm Junior School’s team of mini gardeners putting our donation to good use.”
