Youngsters get planting by the pond
10:10am Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
CHILDREN from Matchborough First School and Arrow Vale Academy joined forces for the eighth year running to plant spring bulbs at the pond near Matchborough Centre.
Three and four-year-olds from Noah’s Ark nursery also got to join in the fun planting by the pond, with a little help from Matchborough and Ipsley councillor Juliet Brunner.
She said: “I’m delighted that our young people are taking part in making Matchborough a nicer place to live. This work will help contribute to our Redditch in Bloom submission. I hope we get a platinum award this time.”
Liz Kuriger, manager at Noah’s Ark, added: “We are always happy to help with community planting. The children are always enthusiastic and look forward to seeing the flowers bloom in the springtime."
