Asda Ashton teams up with a local school to buy gardening equipment for community garden

Published: 29th November 2016 18:45

Pupils from Rosehill Methodist Primary School have recently received a generous donation of gardening tools and equipment from Asda Ashton, which will help with the maintenance of a Tameside community garden.

Asda Ashton's community life champion, Jemma Leatherbarrow, was on hand to meet the local primary school at Gorsey Garden, to hand over the donation.

The local community use Gorsey Garden, to encourage young people to take pride in their local area and help them to develop transferable workplace skills.

The donation of pruners, spades, brushes and rakes will be used to maintain the garden, which is enjoyed by local people and is located on Gorsey Lane, Hazlehurst in Ashton under Lyne.

Jemma Leatherbarrow, community life champion at Asda Ashton, said: "The team at Gorsey Garden are doing a fantastic job to educate the young people within our community to take care of their local neighbourhood.

"We were thrilled to contribute to the ongoing success of the project and its fantastic to meet local primary school children who will be using the new tools and equipment - hopefully it will help them to learn more about appreciating nature, wildlife, growing food and respecting their local environment."

Lydia Hart, a teacher from Rosehill Primary School, said: "I would like to thank Asda for their donation. It was great for the children to visit Gorsey Garden, and see for themselves what a little bit of hard work from volunteers can create for the benefit of the local community and help them feel pride for the local area where they live."

The Gorsey Garden was created in 2013 and continues to grow both in size and in the number who come along to enjoy the horticulture or just to sit and enjoy the surroundings of a garden.
