Axminster pupils learn the value of spadework

Former swimming pool is filled in to become an eco-friendly garden

YOUNGSTERS at Axminster Community Primary School have been busy creating a new garden.

It is being built on the site of their long-redundant swimming pool which has now been filled in.

Members of the Eco Club have been tidying up the seating area, around a solar powered fountain, putting down chippings, while other pupils have been preparing raised beds ready for planting.
