CHILDREN at a Chester school have been digging the dirt.
The Belgrave Infant School pupils have been planting trees, plants and shrubs in their school grounds in Westminster Park.
In preparation, parents, children and staff went back to school on Saturday to clear the wooded area, put up bird boxes and trellis, collect leaves to compost and replace play bark.
Headteacher Deanne Garratt said: “We had an amazing response to our school grounds day and by the end of the day we had filled three skips. Parents and families enjoyed it so much that some have asked if it could be a termly event.”
The PTA supplied all the workers with hot snacks and drinks.
Rob Jones from the Cheshire County Council grounds maintenance team then visited the school to plant some trees.
