Children to plant seeds brighten up town

A RESIDENTS’ group in Henley has enlisted the help of children to grow plants to brighten up the town.

The Gainsborough Residents’ Association has teamed up with Toad Hall garden centre to provide seeds and compost to pupils at Sacred Heart Primary School.

Members of the school’s eco-council will keep half the plants they grow and donate the rest to the local community.

The flowering plants will go to places such as the Chilterns End care home in Greys Road, the Over 60s Centre and Henley YMCA in Lawson Road.

The idea was the brainchild of association founders Dave Eggleton and Paula Isaac. Mr Eggleton, a former Henley in Bloom award winner, delivered the seeds and compost to the Greys Hill school himself.
