Little green fingers get to work in Kineton

GREEN-fingered Kineton youngsters have been watching their gardens grow thanks to a generous donation.

Kineton C of E Primary School received four bags of compost and soil and five gardening tool kits to encourage the pupils to learn a new skill and enjoy spending time in the school gardens.

The donation was from housebuilders Bromford that has a new development near the school.

Deputy Headteacher Jenny Mitchell-Hilton said: “Here at Kineton Primary School, the wonderful outdoors is at the heart of our curriculum so our Year R pupils, have loved getting stuck in using our new gardening tools.

“The generous donation of compost and gardening equipment from Bromford has been used by our Year R and Year 1 pupils to prepare the ground and tend the seeds of the wildflower beds we have created as part of our coronation celebrations.

“The children were delighted to be digging, raking, and sowing away and are hopeful to have a colourful array of beautiful flowers brightening up their outdoor classroom very soon”

Bromford spokesperson Catherine Jarrett added: “Supporting the local community is a huge part of our ethos here at Bromford, so we knew we wanted to donate to a local primary school to mark this year’s National Children’s Gardening Week.

“Especially now we are coming into the summer months, we want to encourage children to get outside and hopefully discover a new hobby.”
