Pupils from St Joseph’s RCVA Primary school in Coundon have had great fun working alongside their parents and members – from the ‘Coundon Bloom Team’ – whilst getting busy planting up the raised beds in their garden. Joan Hall and Lionel Ames brought along the plants, gardening gloves and equipment, which has kindly been donated from funds raised in the Lee-Holme community.
Pupils are looking forward to tending the plants over the coming months. The Bloom Team are putting the school forward for a special award from Northumbria in Bloom.
Finally, we arrive at the end of our Spring Term! It has been jam packed with lots of fun and certainly lots of hard work. Thank you for all your efforts over the past few months… let’s keep up the hard work ready for our challenging Summer Term!
