Community grant helps school with garden project

The children of Blyth School are a step closer to building a Mindfulness Garden thanks to a generous donation from a Bassetlaw District Councillor.

Pupils at The Primary School of St Mary and St Martin in Blyth are currently raising funds to turn an overgrown corner of their school into a Mindfulness Garden that will provide a quiet area for children to go to at play-times.

The garden will also be environmentally friendly and include upcycled materials such as tyres and pallets for seats, and bottle tops and keys for wind chimes.

Cllr Barry Bowles, Ward Member for Blyth, has boosted this total with a donation of £200 from his Councillor Community Grant.

He said: “This is a great project for the children to be involved with and will be of great benefit to the pupils of Blyth School. Community grants allow Councillors to make a real difference in their communities and this is a fantastic example of how we can help local groups with important projects.”
