Digging in for flower power

Have your say

DONCASTER businesses were drafted in to help transform part of a school’s field into a garden.

Workers from several organisations were invited to help by staff at Shaw Wood Primary School in Armthorpe, as they started on a project to construct a vegetable garden and raised flowerbeds.

Among those taking part were buildings maintenance firm Comag Solutions Ltd. As well as digging in, the company contributed £250 of B&Q vouchers to the school for pupils to buy flowers and vegetables for the beds they were building.

David Burns, managing director at the company, which is based on the nearby Shaw Wood business park, was among those taking part in the event at the school, alongside pupils Aiden Hughes, Cameron Curry, Daniel Southern, Emma Pennock, Anna Bennett, Emma Farrell, Lucy Lawson.

He said: “It is a privilege to be asked to contribute to something that gives back to the community.”
