BANKERS dug in to help re­vamp a school’s gar­den.

Parkroyal Com­mu­nity School wel­comed a team from Bar­clays Bank to help make two new gar­den beds for the school’s out­door quiet area.

The boys from the bank’s com­mu­nity scheme in­cluded Ben Ikin, Peter Cook, Andy Browne and Joe Martinez, who all work at the Knutsford branch.

They do­nated £500 fund­ing for ma­te­ri­als and plenty of el­bow grease to com­plete the task at the Lyon Street school.

Mandy Martinez, from Bar­clays, said: “The new beds are part of a plan to cre­ate a tran­quil space in which pupils can learn and play.

“Thanks to Bar­clays, the devel­op­ment is well un­der way.”

The school is run­ning a summer playscheme called Fun­fac­tors. Check the school’s web­site for de­tails.
