YOUNGSTERS took up a spot of gardening after planting new flower beds.

Burnham Pre-school pupils went to the town’s train station to make a new planter.

Practice manager Julie Abbott led the annual event.

She said: “It’s a community thing we do every year with the children.

“We walk up to the railway station together – mums and dads are welcome too – with our tools and the children do all the digging, planting and watering.

“Then we walk up to water them throughout the summer.

“The children do artwork afterwards and we talk about the bees and insects and flowers.

“They had fun walking to the station and back – we saw a train and waved at the driver. The children thoroughly enjoyed getting muddy and digging holes for the flowers.

“They picked their favourites out and got to plant and water them.

“Overall it was a very enjoyable experience for them.”

Deputy mayor Nick Skeens also stopped by to admire the children’s hard work.
