GREEN-FINGERED volunteers from E.ON swapped their spanners for spades.
The six-strong team from the energy company’s Connah's Quay Power Station helped build greenhouses at Glyn Ceiriog Primary School in Llangollen.
The engineers helped to erect several large polytunnels, which are large greenhouses that have polythene walls in place of glass.
They also installed a fence and gate leading into the garden area and painted some play equipment.
The long-awaited project will mean pupils will now be able to grow their own vegetables throughout the year.
Volunteer Stuart Baxter said: “It was a real team-bonding experience for us, with lots of hard manual work – but we made sure we had fun along the way as well.
“It’s great that we were able to do something that really helps out the children at the school, and we hope the greenhouses will be here for them to use for a long time to come.”
Hannah Parkinson, a teacher at the school, added: “We’re very grateful for the help provided by E.ON. Now we have our greenhouses up the children can begin planting and growing some more vegetables to extend our kitchen gardens project.
“The fence and gate that the team put up will also help to look after the area, and the children can't wait to play on the newly painted swings.”
