The suc­cess of a com­mu­nity gar­den has been cel­e­brated.

Chil­dren from Ash­ford Oaks Pri­mary School have worked to keep the site be­tween Beaver Lane and Crown­field Road as a wildlife habi­tat.

This has in­cluded tend­ing the flower planters, man­ag­ing the area to pre­vent lit­ter and con­struct­ing more benches and a set of goal posts.

The event this week marked the cur­rent Year 6 chil­dren hand­ing over the main­te­nance ba­ton to Year 5 chil­dren, who will carry on with the work from Septem­ber. The gar­den was de­vel­oped thanks to the Project Pur­ple Com­mu­nity Scheme.
