It's ready, set, grow for Woolpit children thanks to gardening equipment donation




Pre-schoolers in Woolpit have been getting hands-on gardening experience.

Children at Woolpit Arc Childcare Centre put gardening sets and sunflower seeds donated by David Wilson Homes to good use during National Growing for Wellbeing Week.

Jackie Grant, centre manager, said: “The children have massively enjoyed planting the seeds and are really excited to watch them grow.

"We encourage our children to explore the wonders of nature and be outside as much as possible, so seeds and tools are perfect.”

Each child planted sunflower seeds, watered them and will now enjoy a friendly competition to see whose grows the tallest.

Annette Hurst, of David Wilson Homes, said: “We hope our donation will help the children to consider growing their own in the future.”
