BSW Timber encourages green fingers in local primary schools

Published:  27 June, 2014

BSW Timber has donated planter boxes to primary schools in the areas surrounding its seven sites across the UK, continuing its longstanding commitment to supporting local communities.

Pupils and staff at the schools have been encouraged to grow their own plants and continue to actively promote nature in their grounds.

The schools involved are Newbridge-on-Wye Church in Wales School, Dalbeattie Primary, Deshar Primary, Banavie Primary, Earlston Primary, Rockcliffe C of E Primary and Saltoun Primary.

Eve Johnson, marketing manager at BSW Timber, said: "“We’re pleased to be able to support local children and schools, and to encourage our communities to take an interest in gardening. The planters provide the perfect opportunity for pupils to discover their green fingers, whilst engaging in hands-on learning about the science behind it all.”

Mrs Daly, teacher at Saltoun Primary School, said: "Donations such as this are always gratefully recieved at our school. The children are all very excited about the prospect of growing their own plants."
