Ground force team get to work
A team of childen, parents and community volunteers got their hands dirty during a ‘ground force day’.
THE WHOLE community got stuck into the mud creating a unique school garden at East-the-Water Primary School.
Children, parents, teacher and governors planted around 2,000 plants during the ‘ground force day’ on March 10.
Businesses such as BJ’s Value House and Tesco also helped out, along with members of the Prince’s Trust and the Allotment Association.
Clare Barwick, a teacher and outdoor curriculum leader, said: “Our aim is for children to be able to learn outside growing vegetables, pond dipping and investigating.

“Children will also have a completely different environment to enjoy at break and lunchtimes; it will be an amazing resource and I don’t know of another school with anything like it.
“I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in the project and offered their support.”
