The School Flower Beds Project
Some of the grant money awarded to the BHG in 2010 by the Awards for All Big Lottery Fund was used for the construction of 3 raised flower beds in the grounds of Brompton Primary School, using bricks from the demolished mill chimney. Members of the group (Miles Langthorne, Ian Richardson and Jennie Hancock) moved a couple of hundred or so bricks to the site at the school and cleaned the bricks by chipping off the old mortar, which was quite a problem.
On Monday 1st August 2011 they began work on the build and by Friday 5th August the beds were ready and the surrounding area re-seeded with grass
When term started early in September the grass had grown nicely and before long the beds were planted up by the children in the gardening group run by Jackie Walker. The plants were provided by the BHG.
