WHEN it comes to gardening, the children at St Matthew’s Primary School in Little Lever are happy to roll their sleeves up and get digging in the school plot.
Their efforts have been rewarded this year with a bumper crop of vegetables and fruit, including these pumpkins.
Now the pumpkins will be made into soup for all the children to enjoy.
Headteacher Georgina Ryding said the gardening club had proved to be very successful and has been enjoyed by the children.
Enthusiastic parent volunteer, Nicola Ryall, who used to have her own allotment, has been happy to help with the Norris Street school project.
“The children get up to their eyes in mud,” said Mrs Ryding.
“They do all the planting and weeding and they love it.”
