AS PART of All Saints Primary School’s attempts to brighten up Clevedon, students have been out and about in the town canvassing opinion and taking orders for flower planters.

Children have been finding out about plants and environments and they have used this information to start a project with the community to plant more flowers in the town.

Pupils spoke to residents and businesses during a coffee morning about ways the town could be brightened up before using their findings to create prototype planters. They then spent a morning in Queen’s Square to take orders for planters from the public.

People had the choice of placing an order for a more traditional planter or hanging basket as well as some more quirky ideas including planters made out of buckets and even old boots.

In total, 66 orders were taken and these will be ready for collection later this month.

The community enterprise is being supported by Clevedon Pride and Clevedon Town Council.
