Parents and children transform gardens

PARENTS, pupils and governors at Badgemore primary in Henley helped to improve the school gardens.

PARENTS, pupils and governors at Badgemore primary in Henley helped to improve the school gardens.

About 30 volunteers dug out an embankment next to the playground and planted it with wild grasses and flowers, including poppies. They also moved two planters and filled them with fresh soil, then replanted them with sage, thyme, rosemary, chives and sweet peas.

Friends of Badgemore, the school?s parent teacher association, is improving the forest school?s grounds. The volunteers enjoyed a barbecue, which was partly funded with a £20 donation from Tesco.

Organiser and governor Tuc Ahmed, whose seven-year-old son Isaac is a pupil, said: ?It was a very productive and friendly afternoon. It was supposed to finish at about 3pm but the weather was so nice that we didn?t finish until a few hours after that.

?We?d all got stuck in and wanted to finish what we?d started. Everyone really enjoyed it.?
