Event was part of National Children’s Gardening Week

Children from Cranfield Academy got their fingers green at a planting event organised by Bloor Homes’ Cranfield Park development.

The project marked National Children’s Gardening Week. It saw the children put paint to paper to come up with some colourful creations to inspire the design of garden troughs.

They were then invited to get their hands dirty and help with planting the trough, which now brightens the outdoor play area at the school.

Lisa Edmond, reception leader at Cranfield Academy said:

“Our pupils really loved getting involved in the project. We talked about the importance of gardens to add colour and interest. We then looked at pictures of garden planting and the children got to work with their own colourful designs.

“It was really exciting for our children to take part in the planting event at the school today and get involved in bringing their ideas to life – they had a fantastic time and the end result looked great.”

Gemma Deacon, acting head of sales for Bloor Homes South Midlands, said:

“We were delighted to work with reception students and teachers from Cranfield Academy on this planting project. We have recently launched our Brighter Communities campaign and partnering with local schools is a key part of our commitment.

“We hope all of the pupils and visitors to the school enjoy the trough for many months to come.”
