Garden guru lifts vandal-hit school
by David Simister

GARDENING guru Jenny Hendy boosted pupils at a West Lancashire school after it was targeted by vandals earlier in the year.

Jenny, an author, designer and and local radio presenter, visited Lathom St James Primary School, Westhead, to offer tips on how to keep the school's garden looking smart.

Paul Kenyon, of Westhead Garden Club, said: “Hearing of the garden vandalism and theft of gardening tools, Jenny gave the children a talk on how to improve their garden habitat for wildlife and presented the school with her award-winning book entitled Kids' First Gardening Book”.

“Some pupils from the school's gardening club showed Jenny around their garden and in return were given some seeds and bulbs to plant in order to encourage insects.”

The school's garden has also been given a hand from volunteers from the Co-operative Bank's offices in Skemersdale and from Talk Talk, who have already helped the school by replacing some of the stolen tools and helping to tidy up the garden after it was targeted by vandals.
