CHILDREN could take over an allotment in Wargrave as part of a school project.
Robert Piggott Junior School wants to look after a plot at the Woodclyffe allotments off Victoria Road to teach pupils about Dig for Victory, a Second World War campaign which encouraged the use of gardens, sports pitches and parks to grow produce.
Parish councillor Marion Pope said: “They want to take over an allotment where the children would be responsible for growing and harvesting their own food.
“It’s a brilliant idea and in the long term it might get parents interested in allotments and the children in future years. There’s a benefit for them, the council and for Wargrave.”
Parish clerk Stephen Hedges said he would put the school in touch with the Woodclyffe Allotment Society.
