VOLUNTEER gardeners have planted six cherry trees at Chiltern Edge School in Sonning Common
VOLUNTEER gardeners have planted six cherry trees at Chiltern Edge School in Sonning Common.
The Village Gardeners joined staff from the school, including headteacher Daniel Sadler, to plant three white and three pink flowering trees at the front of the school in Reades Lane.
The trees cost a total of £600 and were paid for by the gardening group with money raised at a recent ukulele evening as well as donations.
Meanwhile the group, which is run by parish councillor Chrissie Phillips-Tilbury, has been planting 3,000 snowdrops in drifts around the village. Pupils from the school helped, planting 1,500 flowers near the cherry trees.
The gardening group also donated 200 snowdrops to Sonning Common Primary School in Grove Road.
