Newton Primary School pupils have been digging the dirt.
The youngsters have planted dwarf fruit trees in the school grounds.
The trees, a mixture of apples and pears, were funded by local councillors Tom Parry and Adrian Walmsley who had given money to the school as part of their ‘Making the Earth Happy’ project which ran last summer term.
The funds also paid for a fantastic falconry display in the school grounds.
The orchard is part of a legacy of the school event.
The Year 4 Gardening club, which is run on a Wednesday lunch time by volunteer parents have already planted two of the trees.
The children added lots of compost to the planting holes, placed the trees in position, gave each a stake to hold it in place and watered them in well. They are looking forward to seeing some blossom on the trees soon and fruit in the autumn.
