A school garden has been given a makeover to prepare for the summer season.

Parents and pupils from English Martyrs Primary School in Oakham spent the weekend painting fences, weeding flowerbeds, digging a pond, rebuilding a willow tunnel brightening up the outdoor areas.

They were joined by volunteers from St George’s Barracks in North Luffenham who returned to the school this week to finish the jobs.

Learning support assistant Paula Menzies said: “Our reception children use their garden every day and we try to do lots of outdoor activities and planting.

“This project will give the older children more access too.

“The garden looks fantastic and the volunteers have made such a difference.”
