YOUNG gardeners at Windwhistle Primary School were pleased to receive a big boost in the form of a cash gift from parents and governors.

The Parents of Windwhistle School (Paws) delivered the £110 donation to help the Weston school’s gardening club to buy much-needed new equipment to allow children to nurture their green fingers.

Verity Sanders, the after school gardening club leader, was able to buy a green house, watering cans and gardening gloves to help the budding horticulturists.

She also grabbed some bulbs and flowers ready for the start of the planting season, and said the pupils are very excited to see them sprout next spring.

Children added a splash of colour to the school scenery by planting pansies around the grounds – but not before they had weeded and tidied up all the pots and planters.
