THE Ash­ford branch of Sains­bury’s has cho­sen the pupils of Chal­lock Pri­mary School as pi­o­neers of its ‘Plant it, Grow it, Eat it’ project.

Last week the school was pre­sented with a bag full of gar­den­ing equip­ment suit­able for the youngsters to start to grow their own fruit and veg­eta­bles both at school and at home.

Pupils in Squir­rel class were given the kit as they will be the project pi­o­neers.

Head teacher Sue Petrie, said: “The chil­dren are ex­cited about grow­ing and then eat­ing their own pro­duce and are also go­ing to be able to use the tools to keep our Hamp­ton Court winning Lit­er­acy Gar­den neat and tidy as well.”
