A PRIMARY school has worked with a manufacturer to renovate their allotment space.

Gisburn Road Community Primary School in Barnoldswick has thanked Rolls Royce Community Group volunteers who partnered with the school to help regenerate an outdoor space into a usable allotment.

School staff, parents and pupils have worked hard for several weeks alongside the volunteers to build a secure fence, install gates, build each class a raised bed to make the allotment an attractive, productive place to grow a multitude of fruits and vegetables for school and the community.

Headteacher Mrs Nicola Walker said: “It has been amazing to get the whole community together, meeting up throughout the week and on weekends, to work together to achieve a goal.

“School would like to thank all of the volunteers from Rolls Royce and from the school community for all of their hard work and commitment.

“Pupils cannot wait to start growing.”

A spokesperson for Rolls Royce said: “Rolls-Royce volunteers collaborated with the school, some of the pupils and their parents to transform the allotment with some basic materials such as timber and bark and a lot of hard work.

“It was another great example of a community project and we look forward to seeing the produce the school grows.”
