GREEN-FINGERED youngsters at Letham Mains Primary School Nursery are revamping their garden thanks to a £1,000 donation.

Youngsters at the school’s nursery created a wishlist and plans to transform the outdoor space. The children have already started work on the project.

Their plans have been boosted by housebuilder Stewart Milne Homes.

Bruce Murray, headteacher at the school on Haddington’s western edge, thanked the developer for its assistance.

He said: “It’s a wonderful opportunity for the children to become involved in the design, planning and implementation of our garden improvements.

“The sense of ownership is obvious and we can’t wait to see their ideas realised.

“It will add value to their learning experience and enhance our setting.”

Launched last year, Stewart Milne Homes’ Eco-Gardens Initiative provides funding for primary schools near some of its developments in Scotland and north-west England.

Isobel Warnock, head of sales Scotland at Stewart Milne Homes, said: “It was a pleasure to work with the staff at Letham Mains Primary School Nursery and see how their hard work will enhance their nursery garden space.”
