School’s gift for the gar­den

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

A spe­cial­ist school has re­ceived free gar­den­ing equip­ment, plants and or­na­ments for the chil­dren to use.

The Gold­wyn School in Great Chart also runs the Link Nur­ture Project, to help school pupils from across the bor­ough who strug­gle with so­cial and emo­tional dif­fi­cul­ties.

They were one of five groups awarded with more than £500 of equip­ment by Dob­bie’s Gar­den Cen­tre at the Eureka Leisure Park.

Teacher Amy Honey said: “We went shop­ping with £550 so we can do up the gar­den at the Link which is based at the for­mer school in Hoth­field.

“The gar­den needs a lot of do­ing up. We want our chil­dren to be able to en­joy gar­den­ing and do­ing bug hunts in the sen­sory gar­den. It will be a ther­a­peu­tic area for them.”
