GREEN-FINGERED pupils at a trio of primary schools in Rustington have been sowing the seeds of future blooming brilliance.

Youngsters from the Georgian Gardens Community Primary School, Rustington Community Primary School and the Summerlea Community Primary School have once again been preparing for spring by uniting with Rustington Parish Council in an effort to brighten up the village.

The children were joined by the chairman of the parish council, councillor Graham Tyler, who helped them in planting the new bulbs, in recent weeks.

It is hoped that, once the plants bloom, they will offer an eco-friendly sanctuary for bees and butterflies.

Mr Tyler said he was ‘most impressed by the enthusiasm and commitment demonstrated by the pupils’.

The young planters were made up of years-three and four children at Summerlea, the key stage 2 gardening enrichment club at Rustington and the year-five eco team at Georgian Gardens.
