School gar­den party

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

GREEN-FIN­GERED pupils have been busy work­ing on their com­mu­nity gar­den project.

Thomas Harding School, in Fullers Hill, Che­sham, was re­cently paid a visit by chair­man of Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil coun­cil­lor Noel Brown, who went to visit the school’s com­mu­nity gar­den.

The school be­gan to clear and de­velop the site in its grounds at the start of 2014 and the pond area of the project was com­pleted in July, thanks to suc­cess­ful fund­ing ap­pli­ca­tions.

It is sup­ported by par­ents, Che­sham in Bloom, Che­sham Ac­tion Part­ner­ship and Che­sham Town Coun­cil.

Dur­ing his visit, Mr Brown was shown around the com­pleted phase one by some of the school’s gar­den­ing club and eco club chil­dren, who told him how ‘pleased’ they are that the gar­den is be­ing de­vel­oped.

The school is hop­ing to re­ceive some fund­ing from Mr Brown for the project and it is con­tin­u­ing to ap­ply for fund­ing from other sources too.
