North Wootton Community School welcomed West Norfolk mayor David Whitby to officially open their new garden area.

Over the last few months, the PTA committee, with the kind support of several local companies, have worked really hard to transform a very neglected area of ground into a wonderful garden area.

The garden included raised beds for the children to use to plant some seasonal fruits and vegetables and the school have lots of fresh produce ready for harvesting, including strawberries and raspberries.

From September, the school will timetable the garden for use by the children and they can use this area to enhance their learning over a wide range of topics and subjects.

Following the opening ceremony, cook manager Dawn Nobbs provided a beautiful cream tea spread, using some of the delicious fruits for scones, along with some commemorative biscuits.
