Sacred Heart pupils help plant bulbs
Published 06/10/13



CHILDREN helped to spruce up a community area in Henley.

Pupils from Sacred Heart Primary School planted crocus bulbs around trees on the green in The Close on Friday.

They were: Fionnuala Scott, 10; Bill Bowley, William Grant, Alex Robinson, Olivia Oldham, Erin Perezquane, Charnell Buck and Finnbar Scott, all seven; Katie Zabel, six; Freya Zabel, Oliva Grant and Charlie Oldham, all four; Toby Robinson, three; and Jasmine Robinson, one.

The children were helped by Mayor Stefan Gawrysiak and Jane Cox from housing association Soha.

Residents Pat Main, Sue Hickman and Ken Henley have created two small borders on the edge of the green planted with a variety of grasses and decorative tree roots supplied by Toad Hall garden centre.

Cash donations were made by Soha, funeral directors Tomalin & Son, Ron Crook and other residents of The Close.

The residents have also started a bulb fund to keep the area looking good. Councillor Gawrysiak told them: “It is absolutely brilliant what you are doing and I am sure the children will see the benefits as they grow up.”

David Eggleton, co-founder of the new Gainsborough Residents’ Association, said: “I think it will make people feel really good being surrounded by flowers.” Daphne Bayliss, who has lived in The Close for 28 years, said: “It is the best place to live in Henley. We all feel very safe and secure and everybody is really friendly. It is going to be lovely to see all these flowers and I can come to the green and sit on the bench to look at the view.”

Neighbour Mary Fanthorpe said: “I love the green and the people who live here keep their gardens beautiful and are very considerate.”
