Green-fingered school pupils' community planting project

Pupils from St Gregory’s Catholic Science College and Uxendon Manor Primary School in Kenton, joined forces to plant hundreds of daffodil bulbs and crocus corms in Woodcock Park.

Veolia, the company which manages Brent’s parks, supplied the daffodil bulbs. The Rotary Club of Northwick Park donated purple crocus corms to raise awareness for their End Polio Now campaign.

As well as planting the crocuses in Woodcock Park, pupils also planted them in St Gregory’s Eco Garden. St Gregory’s Headteacher Andrew Prindiville expressed his delight that the pupils were able to assist the Rotary Club in raising awareness of their work to eradicate polio across the world, adding: ‘We also hope that the daffodils and crocuses planted by pupils from St Gregory’s Catholic Science College and Uxendon Manor Primary School bring cheer to users of Woodcock Park next spring.’
