Students from a school in Normanton came together last week to help improve communal land on Church Court.
32 pupils at Newlands Primary School took part in the event, which was organised as part of WDH’s Love Where You Live project following a consultation with local residents about how the area could be improved. The youngsters carried out a litter pick, helped clear weeds, replant shrubs and bed a range of new plants.
Claire Secker, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer, said: “Everyone who took part has done a fantastic job - they’ve all really helped transform the area. Looking forward to the winter period, we’ll try and get the pupils out again to do some more planting to maintain the project.”
Local resident, Ann Davison, 77, said: “The pupils have been fantastic, and what they’ve done looks really lovely. It’s been nice to see the progress they’ve made.”
