A celebratory ceremony has been organised by Doncaster Council at Stainforth Welfare Ground later this week to mark the completion of a special environmental project supported by local children from the area.
The Council’s East Area Neighbourhood Support Team have been working their green fingers alongside Year 5 pupils from Longtoft Primary School planting flower beds in the striking design of a coal truck as a fitting tribute to the theme of Doncaster’s mining industry.
Similar projects have already been delivered with support from West Road Primary and Green Top Primary Schools, and it is hoped even more opportunities will be organised in the future in order to give local children the chance to work with their Neighbourhood Support Team and learn to value the importance of the environment and wildlife in their surrounding community.
Doncaster Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, Councillor Patrick Wilson, said: ‘I would like to congratulate everyone who has taken part. This was a wonderful educational and environmental project for our children to have been involved in. Not only have they been able to learn about mining history and their cultural heritage but they have created a fantastic visual floral display that can be enjoyed by the whole community.’
