Kids' bulbs brighten up Mansfield Woodhouse!

Children from Peafield Lane Primary School have been doing their bit to make the district of Mansfield a brighter and more colourful place by helping to plant 10,000 flower bulbs.

A group of 30 pupils from the school helped Mansfield District Council's Parks Staff and the Friends of Peafield Park to plant 5,000 mixed crocus and 5,000 Dutch Master daffodil bulbs in the Park, off Litton Road.

Children from Peafield Lane Primary School and the Friends of Peafield Park helped to plant 10,000 bulbs in Peafield Park.

The children will be returning to see the bulbs in flower in the spring.

This is part of a wider project to brighten up our district. The District Council have planted 60,000 bulbs this autumn:

Councillor Eddie Smith, Portfolio Holder for the Environment at Mansfield District Council, commented: "You would be forgiven for thinking that the autumn and winter periods are quiet ones for our parks staff but they have been hard at work planting, as well as carrying out other tasks to make the district a brighter and more colourful one for next year and my thanks go to them."

"I am particularly pleased that the children from Peafield Lane school have been taking part in this planting. It is good to know that these youngsters are being taught the value and beauty of nature and how to take pride in their surroundings."
