Corona Virus has not stopped our education support

This year has been significantly different to previous years. Due to Corona Virus we were unable to make our usual trip to Kelmarsh. We have really missed this annual event and hope we can restart it next year.

We have continued to link up with schools and support them through providing small amounts of funding for gardening projects. This has included a project at Thrussington school which was given money for raised beds in February.

The raised beds that LRGT so generously gave are being put to good use. The Early Years children grew carrots, onions and beetroot whilst Year 1 attempted runner beans. The seeds were started off by children and Key Workers during the early part of Lockdown.

We have also continued with our autumn activity of giving daffodil bulbs to schools for planting in their gardens.
