Last week saw children from Wainscott Primary School plant 1,000 bulbs at Crest Nicholson’s Liberty Park development in Wainscott, just in time for them to return in the spring to see how their bulbs have grown.
The children, who are members of the School Council, were asked by the award-winning property developer to plant three varieties of daffodil bulbs on the open space at the development.
Pete Jones, from Land Design Partnership who works closely with Crest Nicholson at Liberty Park and worked with Wainscott Primary School on the project, said: “Although the ground conditions weren't great, all the children got stuck in and went home with muddy hands, showing that they had all had a good go! The bulbs are due to flower this spring and we look forward to welcoming the children back so that they can see the fruits of their labour.”
Miss Julie North, a third year teacher at Wainscott Primary School who accompanied the children, said: “It was great to see the children, some of whom are members of our gardening club, working together and participating in this practical activity. The local geography is always an interesting topic for the children and it was a fantastic opportunity for the children to gain some hands-on experience. Having practical experience really brings the subject to life and is a great way to teach. We are all really looking forward to returning in the spring.” Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “We were delighted to welcome the children to Liberty Park; they certainly seemed to enjoy themselves. Crest Nicholson always take care to protect and preserve natural wildlife as much as possible and we’re very happy to encourage local children to appreciate and look after nature. There are so many aspects to the construction industry and it’s wonderful to introduce youngsters to the different elements early on as it may become a career path they choose to follow in later life. Who knows – we may have inspired the next Charlie Dimmock or Alan Titchmarsh!”
