Green fingered children from Lache have been digging deep to brighten up their community by planting bulbs supplied by Sanctuary Housing.

Lache youngsters improve their gardening skills with Sanctuary Housing

Youngsters from Lache Primary School’s eco-council, St. Clare’s Primary School and Little Lache Nursery have been developing their gardening skills by planting daffodil, crocus and tulip bulbs at an event organised at Lache Community Centre by Sanctuary Housing.

Pupils from Lache learn about nurturing plants and the community benefits

The children, together with their teachers, planted the bulbs along a trench which was dug by a team from Cheshire West & Chester Council. The pupils also learnt about nurturing the bulbs and the environmental benefits that plants bring to their community.

Sanctuary is committed to support community projects such as this bulb planting

This is the second year that Sanctuary has supported bulb planting in Lache as part of its programme to provide projects and facilities which meet the needs of residents and get them involved in the community.

Sanctuary Resident Involvement Manager Michele Payne said: “We were delighted to see so many enthusiastic young people wanting to make a difference in their community and we’re all looking forward to seeing the flowers blossom in spring next year.”
