YOUNGSTERS will be able to see the fruits of their own labour as a new garden has been opened at St Lawrence Primary School in Napton.

The garden was opened on Friday last week which has been worked on by the children.

The Royal Sun Alliance Insurance Group has also presented a birdbath and chicken statues.

Children are now growing salads enjoying fresh herbs from the Mediterranean Beds, study local flora in the wild area, pick juicy strawberries and fruit, and explore a specially created bug hotel and butterfly gardens.

The school’s headteacher has been thrilled to see how much this valuable school asset is now being used by the children.

John Brine said: “I have been delighted to see children getting their hands dirty but I have also loved to see children using the gardens as a source of inspiration for story writing. This garden is already making a real difference to the children’s life and studies at school.”
