SCHOOLCHILDREN have been rolling their sleeves up alongside members of Muir’s housing services team to help breathe new life into a community garden.
Pupils from Darnhall Primary School in Winsford got their hands dirty when they helped Muir staff to help tidy up and plant new seeds in the garden serving the town’s Glebe Green Estate.
Muir had arranged for raised flower beds to be replaced by contractors, Sodexo, after the previous ones had rotted away.
And members of the school’s environmental group were only too happy to help the Muir staff from the Association’s Cheshire East and Warrington Housing Team take the next step and help make sure the garden can begin to bloom in spring.
Rob Burrows, Muir Group Housing Association’s Tenancy Services Officer for the Glebe Green Estate said: “Getting children from Darnhall Primary School involved in breathing new life into the community garden is a great way to help put it back to its best.
“The children were very busy tidying up, removing weeds and planting seeds in the new flower beds, and that really made a massive difference.
“Our job would have been much more difficult without their help and we would like to say a massive thank you to them and Darnhall Primary School for engaging with the project, which Muir believes will be of great benefit to the community.
“Hopefully the community garden can start to flourish again in the New Year and can once again be enjoyed by everyone.”
