Primary pupils join GreenSnape for huge bulb planting session

Youngsters from a primary school have planted 3,300 crocus and daffodil bulbs to bring a splash of colour to their village.

A group of 43 pupils, aged four to 11, from Snape Primary took part in the planting with the new GreenSnape project.

The venture was formed out of a campaign earlier in the year to oppose plans for a car park on Snape Marshes to serve Snape Maltings, and now members aim to put their energies into a positive effort to make Snape a nicer place for both people and wildlife.

The group approached primary school headteacher Sarah Gallagher to see if it could work on a project with the school and it was agreed to organise the bulb planting session

She said: “A memorable afternoon was had by all: the children planted, learnt about growing, met and talked to people and jumped up and down like mad to put the turf back! Roll on the next project.”
