The community of Towcester came together last week to plant seasonal flowers along the banks of the Mill Stream.
 
Towcester Evening WI lead the initiative by providing Snowdrop bulbs and native Primroses, and elected members of the Nicholas Hawksmoor School Student Council planted them with help, equipment, and the necessary permission from South Northamptonshire Council (SNC).
 
Sue Hamilton, community officer for the Towcester WI said: “This is just part of the WI’s continued efforts to enhance the town and it’s lovely to see the young ones getting involved yet again."
 
Tim Browning, the year six teacher responsible for the Student Council, said the planting was part of the regular programme of community involvement, and added: “It’s good to have links with the community outside the school. And they’ll be able to look back when they are older and say, ‘we planted those bulbs'."
 
SNC Leader, Cllr Ian McCord said: “Thank you to the WI and Nicholas Hawksmoor students for doing their bit to improve the town. I was also very glad to see the council landscape officer Brian Collins show the children the correct planting technique and share his stories of working on big estates.
 
“I hope memories like this will stay with the children and act as constant reminder they are truly part of the Towcester community.”
