Following a visit to Hungate School to present year 5 with pictorial dictionaries, which the Rotary Club do each year, June, Chairman of the Rotary had a tour of the school grounds. One area which stood out, for the wrong reasons was a patch called the wildflower garden which was overgrown and out of bounds for the children. Help was needed!
The Osgoldcross and Elmet Rotary are very proud to be supporting Sherburn Hungate Primary School, to create a usable space which would provide;
The garden aims to help the children connect and learn about nature and animals, as well as having a calming place they can relax in.
Though the club has had offers of help we do need more, how can you help?
One exciting part of the project will be to build a plastic bottle greenhouse. This will help to teach the children the values and benefits in recycling and how you can re-use plastics to good use. We will need many hundreds of 2-litre bottles, more info where to leave and when will be posted on the school website/newsletters and on Sherburn Residents Facebook page.
The project is estimated to place over the summer holidays to be completed and ready for the new school year in September. If you are able to give time to help, info on when the work will be taking place will be on the Sherburn Residents Facebook page.
