SHIPHAM Primary School’s gardening club has put a £250 grant to good use by fixing up its shed and housing its chickens.

The club was given the money by Go Kids Go! – a scheme run by the Mercury and Weston Lions Club and supported by local businesses. Julie Leader from the school said: “We replaced our shed roof, fencing in our chickens, who became very ‘free range’ over the summer, and got tools and equipment.”
