Over the Easter break, after being long delayed by the pandemic, very pleasing gardening progress was made.  The garden had been looking a little tired and overgrown as well as one or two potential hazards requiring attention. However, in the space of a week, collaboration between parents, their relatives, and staff all helped turn the garden and nursery yard into attractive, child friendly spaces.

We were lucky to have a perfect mix of brains and brawn, with helpers aged between seven and seventy! Coed-y-lan is now the proud owner of six raised beds, one per class. The children will be growing fruit and vegetables from scratch - such vital skills, and knowledge for them to acquire in this age of disposable goods and excessive waste… as well as being a hugely enjoyable experience for them!

Mr Lewis battled with a temperamental petrol strimmer to attack the grassy banks in the nursery yard. His determination paid off and an unsightly patch of overgrowth has been cleared to allow for more light with the future possibility of brightening up this area with wildflowers.

We would also like to thank B&Q for their generosity; plants, compost, and tools were donated to us with a promise of more to come. 

We are very grateful to the supportive community at Coed-y-lan, without whom the garden maintenance would not be possible. What a great team we have! Thank you is just not enough.
