Ashwell Primary School benefited from a garden spruce up when a team of volunteers armed with brushes and gloves gave equipment a good clean and a lick of paint.

The team from the Royston and Baldock branches of Tesco Extra transformed the quiet garden and surrounding fencing.

Tesco community champion Mandy Jinkerson said: “We were delighted to be able to support this project.

“We spent the day rubbing down wooden benches, fences and sheds and giving them a fresh coat of paint.

“The children had planted vegetables and flowers in raised beds and the whole area was transformed into a lovely, quiet area for the children to enjoy.”
