Children from Bishopton Primary School have been getting green-fingered by planting 300 spring bulbs in planters for their school garden and playground.
The 300 bulbs and the planters have been donated by Taylor Wimpey West Scotland as part its national Proud campaign to show its commitment and pride in leaving a lasting legacy in the
communities in which they build.
The planting took place earlier this month and the bulbs are set to grow into a bright, floral tribute in the planters situated around the playground and in the school garden. Site Manager Stuart Rowan from the local Taylor Wimpey development at Dargavel Village, Bishopton joined in with the planting.
Audrey Ross, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said: “We are proud to be building a new community at our Dargavel Village development in Bishopton, and we want to leave places that both our customers and other local residents will enjoy long after we have finished
“We were thrilled to help children from Bishopton Primary with the planting and we hope that the bulbs will grow into a lovely display that the children will admire in years to come.”
Stephen Collins, Deputy Head Teacher at Bishopton Primary School, said: “It’s great for the local community to see the benefits of a project being undertaken in the area.
“The pupils loved getting involved in this initiative and having the opportunity to help with planting the bulbs.
“We can’t wait to see the results, which we will be able to enjoy every spring.”
