At Oak Primary School in Crosland Moor we have just started a gardening club for children in key stage two. We meet once a week after school and spend an hour working in the school garden. Unfortunately, the garden has been neglected for many years and is overgrown and untidy. We have spent the last few weeks clearing the site with our hand and a few tools that teachers have brought in from home. The children are really excited about transforming the space over the coming seasons with plants, flowers and vegetables. We would really appreciate the opportunity to borrow some tools from the Beaumont Park tool store so that we can really get started on improving the garden.
