Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Housebuilder teams up with local pupils to help County Durham bloom

With summer just around the corner, local housebuilder Barratt Developments North East has been helping local pupils across County Durham create their own flower garden and learn about how they can encourage the local wildlife, ready for the summer holidays.

The reception classes at Ox Close Primary School in Spennymoor, and the ‘Big Bumbles’ class at Busy Bears nursery in Durham, received their very own plant pots from the housebuilder and were asked to put their creative skills to the test to decorate them in their own special patterns and designs.

The teams from the nearby Barratt Homes’ Burton Woods development in Spennymoor and David Wilson Homes’ The Drive at Mount Oswald development in Durham, took time out of their busy schedules to visit the school and helped the children plant flower seeds into their plant pots, to celebrate the arrival of spring.

Christie Edge, Sales Manager at Burton Woods and The Drive at Mount Oswald, commented: “We had great fun with the pupils at Ox Close Primary School and Busy Bears nursery. Their plant pots were brilliantly decorated and the pupils were so excited to plant their very own flowers. Here at Barratt Developments North East, we always work hard to give back to the communities we build in and we hope that the children enjoy seeing their flowers bloom throughout spring and summer.”

Michelle Bowman, Class Teacher at Ox Close Primary School, commented: “We’d like to thank Barratt Developments North East for gifting us with the plant pots and helping the class plant their flower seeds.”

Hayley Doyle, Senior Practitioner at Busy Bears Nursery, commented: “The children are really excited to see their flowers grow throughout the summer and we will be looking out for any bees and butterflies that the flowers may attract!”
