CHILDREN from a Southport primary school were given gardening tips from residents at McCarthy and Stone’s Brunlees Court Retirement Living Plus development.
Youngsters from Marshside Primary School visited the Cambridge Road facility this week to brush up on their gardening skills.
McCarthy and Stone invited homeowners from Brunlees Court to lead a masterclass on gardening with the pupils in support for the charity Royal Voluntary Service's annual ‘GrandFest’ event
Anna Sawyer, Year 6 Class Teacher from Marshside Primary School, said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed their morning of gardening at Brunlees Court.
“It was great to see homeowners Steph, Mary and Elizabeth helping the children plant the beautiful flowers in the gardens.
“We hope everyone at Brunlees Court enjoys their lovely garden in the coming months.”
Homeowner Steph Ball, said: “It was my pleasure to help the children of Marshside Primary School.
“I have always got so much pleasure from gardening and it is wonderful to be in the position of passing this on to others.”
