Ready to kick-start the summer months, David Wilson Homes North East, has donated special gardening kits to St. Mary’s Roman Catholic First School in Hexham.

  • The after-school gardening club received five gardening kits, including gardening gloves, watering cans, trowels and rakes from Dawn Wilson, sales adviser at the Woodland Rise development in Hexham.
  • The gardening club, which is enjoyed by 11 pupils, already has an active green space in the school and were able to showcase what they have already grown and taken care of throughout the year.
  • David Wilson Homes’ Woodland Rise development in Hexham has a range of three, four and five bedroom homes available from £274,995. With selected plots overlooking the River Tyne and gardens including decking homes at Woodland Rise are perfect for those looking for the ideal outdoor space.

Rachel Kane, teacher at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic First School, commented:

“We’d like to thank David Wilson Homes for gifting us with the gardening kits. The children have great involvement in the garden area at the school and the tools will be a valuable addition to helping us take care of our plants.”

Ashlea Wright, Sales Manager at Woodland Rise, commented:

“It was fantastic for our sales adviser Dawn to visit St. Mary’s Roman Catholic First School and gift them with their new gardening kits. We work hard to give back to the communities and contribute to the green spaces in which we build. I hope the gardening club get great use out of their kits and continue to stay green fingered!”
