Youngsters from Priory School have been joining members of the Davers Club in preparing the Shakers Lane garden for an open gardens event on June 17.

The pupils aged 16 - 18 have been visiting in small groups each week to help look after the plants in the garden.

They have been sharing tips with the club’s members as well as painting plant pots and creating bug ‘hotels’.

Davers Club manager, Sue Atkins, said: “It’s wonderful to see the young and old in the local community come together over a shared hobby which they are both passionate about.

“We have a great outdoor space here and I’m pleased to see it being used and enjoyed by the wider community as well as our club members.”

The gardening project is part of a campaign to create bird friendly habitats at some of the homes and day clubs run by Care UK.
