Bury in Bloom and staff and clients from Focus 12 were also joined by Alison Findlay from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to plant wildflower in School Yard.

The area was transformed by volunteers last year and more seed has also now been planted on the other side of School Yard.

The colours of the wildflower mix this year is a patriotic red, white and blue.

B&Q donated gardening gloves and sand to help with the seed sowing and Mrs Findlay offered her expert advice and the equipment necessary.

Melanie Lesser, Bury in Bloom co-ordinator, said: “The seed sowing went very well and we are all looking forward to seeing the flowers in bloom.

“We hope the patriotic colours of the flowers will remind all who look at them that this year is the centenary of the end of World War Two.”
