CHILDREN and parents pitched together to help plant bulbs on the Bournville Estate's Chocolate Garden last Friday.

They planted more than 800 daffodil and bluebell bulbs in the garden in readiness for next spring.

In partnership with the Avon Wildlife trust, the Bournville Area Residents’ Association organised the event and have out free snacks to the bulb planters.

Victoria Rooke, from North Somerset Council’s Neighbourhood Management Team, said: “The sun shone for the event and everyone who attended enjoyed free hot chocolate and cakes for the all their hard work.

“We are thankful to everyone for coming along”.
