The Green Ambassadors from Deighton Gates Primary wanted to remember a difficult year for school and families in having to contend with COVID-19.

The youngsters set about creating ‘a symbol of hope for the future’ at the school.

Headteacher Claire Harrison said: “They dreamed of creating a space in school that would be filled with wildflowers that would attract a range of wildlife to the school grounds.

“HACS, who are building a selection of houses neighbouring the school, have made their wishes come true by providing all the resources to create a meadow alongside the playground.”

The headteacher added: “The children can’t wait to observe the meadow growing over the coming months.”
