GREEN fingers from the Bradwell B team helped transform a school's garden this week.

The volunteers from Bradwell B helped to transform the gardens at Purleigh Community Primary School.

Their work included clearing overgrown space, re-locating the bug hotel, and planting a range of insect friendly plants, to create a peaceful and relaxing area for teachers and pupils to enjoy.

The garden also had new plants donated by the school’s PTA and Claremont’s Garden Centre.

Volunteering coordinator at Bradwell B, Michelle St Martin said: “We were delighted to spend a day at Purleigh.

"We all had a great day away from our desks and enjoyed doing something positive for the community.

"The school was really welcoming and it was rewarding to see how different the area looked after a few hours.”

Headteacher at Purleigh Community Primary School, Neil Stotter said: “I am really happy with how much the team has achieved in a day.

"The place has completely changed and been lifted. Our special garden has been restocked with the butterfly and insect plants for which it is intended.

“I would also like to say a massive thank you to the staff at Claremont Nursery for their amazing help and kindness as well as our super PTA for their generosity.

"Mrs St Martin and her volunteer team have taken this magical area and made it sparkle.

"It is looking great and is ready for the children to benefit from again when they return to school.”

Bradwell B is a proposed new nuclear power station.

The project is currently in the early stages of proposal development, with the first stage of public consultation completed between March and July 2020.

It is a joint venture between China's nuclear energy company CGN, and EDF.
