Schoolchildren and councillors have teamed up to plant daffodil bulbs in Havercroft.

Havercroft and Cold Hiendley Parish Council donated 2000 daffodil bulbs for youngsters from Havercroft Academy to plant at the Millennium Garden and on Havercroft Green.

Tracey Fenn, deputy headteacher, said: “We believe schools should be at the heart of the community.

“We are very pleased to build links with the parish council and feel this mutual support will help to create the best possible environment for the children and their families.

“Our involvement in this project will strengthen the children’s ideas about care for environment, respect and responsibility which are key aspects of our curriculum.”

Children from the upper foundation stage to year six were involved in the planting with Coun Maureen Cummings and the nursery children planted some bulbs in the school grounds.

Coun Cummings, Wakefield Council’s cabinet member for environment and communities, said: “It was lovely meeting pupils from Havercroft Academy and planting these daffodil bulbs – which will really brighten up the area.

“It was also great working with the parish council on this project and I look forward to seeing the daffodils grow.”
