Volunteers dig deep for Peel Park Primary School, Undercliffe
11:05am Thursday 5th May 2011 in Undercliffe
Green fingered volunteers at Yorkshire Water have created an outdoor learning space for youngsters at Peel Park Primary School, Bradford.
The team of employees from the Bradford-based business and sister company Loop Customer Management installed a polytunnel for growing vegetables and restored the school’s dipping pond.
The work, which was carried out as part of Yorkshire Water’s One Million Green Fingers scheme, also saw them lay a new path and plant shrubs around the pond.
Team leader Nadia Hussain, who works for Loop’s commercial debt department, said: “The school have wanted to have an enhanced outdoor learning area for some time and we are delighted to be able to provide them with the volunteers to build it.”
