Northowram Primary schoolchildren’s gardening club is blossoming this summer with a timely donation from Caddick Construction.

Just in time for National Children’s Gardening Week (29thMay–6thJune), the pupils took delivery of two sizeable planters from Caddick which had been on its Moor Park development at Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

As part of a Caddick community-led initiative the schoolchildren are going to use the planters to create their own vegetable and flower patches for the school’s popular gardening club. Caddick also donated a number of plants to the school to get the children started.

Caddick Social Value Manager Debbie Watson said:
“We are looking forward to see what the children at Northowram can grow this summer, we’re hoping for a bumper crop to go into the school’s kitchen, as well as some colourful blooms to help brighten up the school grounds. The children obviously put a lot of time and hard work into their gardening club, so we were delighted to help out by getting the planters on site for them.”
