CHILDREN at Pebworth First School now have another location for outdoor learning with the opening of a new polytunnel.

The school held an event to officially open the new equipment, which was funded with a grant from the Global Gathering Windfall Trust applied for by Pebworth in Bloom.

The event was attended by members of the Pebworth in Bloom committee and other local people who work closely and support the school.

Children from Year 5 and those who attend the weekly gardening club served tea and homemade rhubarb cake to the guests.

The cutting of the ribbon was done by James Lamb, Bethan Prescott, Caitlin Prescott and Alex O'Grady, children whose families helped with the construction of the poly tunnel.

Parent volunteer Tracey Lamb said: “We are exceedingly grateful to Pebworth in Bloom for applying to the Global Gathering windfall fund for this grant.

"We can now grow a wider range of plants and teach in an outdoor environment all year round.”

Anthony Green, what a mean spirited and silly comment. The money has nothing to do with drugs. The use of drugs at a festival in no way raises money for the organisers of the event, rather I would think it causes trouble for them. The article is talking about First School children getting a brilliant new facility in which to learn, and with which to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Why do you feel the need to try to spoil something so positive by making nasty, factually incorrect comments?
