Pro-Grow donation to Ashley School in Widnes!

Ashley School in Widnes has received a donation of 5 tonnes of soil improver from Veolia’s composting facility, Haddocks Wood, to help transform the schools grounds!

Armed with spades, trowels, buckets and bags, the students worked really hard and made quick work of the huge pile, which they then transported to Ashley School.

Ashley School have been busy fundraising over the last few months to transform the school grounds by planting trees and creating a gardening area. The donation will ensure the freshly planted trees and plants have the best start and will also be used in the gardening area, where green fingered teachers and students hope to grow herbs, vegetables and fruit over the next year.

Fiona Lawrenson, teacher at Ashley School said: “We are extremely grateful to Veolia for donating such a huge amount of compost. It will allow us to make huge environmental improvements around the grounds at Ashley. Students have already made a great start with the creation of a Remembrance Garden and the creation of flower borders.”

If you would like to make an application for a donation contact Veolia on 0151651 3200.
