Schoolchildren take part in vegetable competition
PUPILS at a Welham Green school will benefit from a new vegetable garden thanks to a group of volunteers.
On Wednesday two teams of helpers, from Tesco’s International Sourcing Department and NYK Logistics, visited St Mary’s Primary School as part of the Get Connected organisation.
The groups spent the whole day building the vegetable garden and growing plots for the children of the Dellsome Lane school.
Headteacher Jane Guy said the volunteers were well looked after by the school council members.
She said: “The vegetable growing project will be a vital part of the children’s learning in environmental science, healthy eating and many other curriculum areas.

“The work undertaken involved clearing vegetation, enriching the soil, building raised beds and replanting some existing shrubbery.
“Both staff and children were thrilled with the final result and look forward to many years of productive gardening.”
