A few weeks ago the Student Council worked with Towcester WI planting tubs and containers.
These have now been presented to Ridgeway House Care Home. The Council and the WI visited the home on Thursday 8th December.
We were met by members of staff who introduced us to Ben, one of the residents, who is a keen gardener and tends the gardens around the home. Ben and the children chatted about what they had planted and Ben showed us around the courtyard garden discussing the plants and shrubs he has grown.
The tubs and planters are already very colourful with the winter pansies and primroses but hidden underneath are a host of spring bulbs which should give another splash of colour in a few weeks. Ben has invited the Council back to see the bulbs in the spring.
Thank you also to the staff at Ridgeway who provided the children with lovely refreshments!
