Footsteps Out of School Club, based at Dosthill School, offer lots of extra-curricular activities for the children to participate in each week, one of which is Gardening Club.
The children join community gardener Sue Hollis each week and have been helping her to improve the broom area of the field by helping to tidy, plant bulbs, make bird feeders and tend to an allotment area where fresh vegetables grow.
Sue entered the area into the Heart of England Tamworth in Bloom 2017 competition. And we were invited to meet the judges and Mayor of Tamworth at Cheatle Court in Dosthill so they could take a look at the improvements to the area and gather evidence for the competition.
Hopefully what the children and Sue have achieved in such a short space of time will win some gardening prizes!
