Pupils help spread a little cheer to Baildon sheltered housing scheme

Green-fingered pupils at a Baildon school are set to give an Incommunities’ sheltered housing scheme a real splash of colour this spring.
Each planter was brightly painted and then filled with pansies and primulas.
They were helped by the school’s part-time gardener Steve Thorpe who runs a weekly gardening class.
Rosie Bavinton, of Glenaire Primary School, said: “The children have really enjoyed creating the displays and meeting the older residents.
“This engagement project aims to encourage our pupils to contribute to brightening up the local community and helping other residents.
Harry Whittle, director of Incommunities – estate and support services, said: “I would like to thank the pupils and staff at Glenaire Primary School for donating these planters.
“The school visit proved very rewarding in bringing different generations together and as a caring community focused housing group we are keen to encourage such positive initiatives.”
