A BUILDING company has been helping to grow the next generation of gardeners in Worle.

Students from Castle Batch Primary School have been taking part in a competition run by Persimmon Homes and have been recording their work with their fruit and vegetable plants.

Sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes Nicola Reed said: “The pupils are so enthusiastic and I’m confident that they will come up with some really imaginative and creative ideas to grow their own fruit and vegetables.”

Castle Batch’s school business manager Linda Payne said: “The children are really enjoying getting stuck into their gardening and learning about the importance of growing vegetables.”
