Chilton youngsters help council plant thousands of bulbs
CHILTON children dug in today (Friday, October 11) to help brighten up their community.
Year five pupils from Chilton Primary School planted spring flowering bulbs along the north approach to the town, off West Chilton Lane.
Chilton Town Council will plant around 6,000 daffodils and hyacinths throughout the town and enlisting the help of local youngsters with the task has become an annual event.
Mayor Elizabeth Bruce said: “It is nice to get the children involved in anything we do in Chilton, it is their community and come spring they will have contributed to making it a nicer looking place.
“They are always very proud of their role and it is good for them to see how what they plant now will grow next year.”
Volunteer Cameron Bellingham, nine, added: “It is good fun and nice to make Chilton a better place.”
