Pupils at Lismore Primary School are saying thanks for their new garden shed.

An appeal for donations to build a new shed for their garden harvested a good crop of donations.

The children have been busy planting, looking after and gathering a variety of fruit and vegetables thanks to all those in the community who donated money and time to the project.

‘They have also been learning to cook their produce and enjoyed eating it for lunch – especially the rhubarb!’ said the school’s Roxanne MacColl.

She added: ‘The staff and pupils are all looking forward to a bumper crop of strawberries, carrots and courgettes in the polytunnel, potatoes from the raised beds and apples from the orchard.

‘Thank you again to everyone who has helped us get to this point; we have lots of plans for next year and hope to be able to share some of our produce with you soon.’
