A REPRESENTATIVE of the Queen officially opened a school’s new growing area.
Lord Lieutenant of Moray, Major General Seymour Monro, mucked in at Dallas Primary.
The P7s talked about plans for the garden. Contributors have included the Houldsworth family who granted the land, the Gibson family who lent a digger driver to clear it, and the army who built a Polycrub growing area.
Mrs Poppy Houldsworth cut a ribbon to officially open the Polycrub and the pupils presented her with a handmade card and flowers.
The P7s invited Major Monro to plant the first (apple) tree, then the children sang a song about the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Green Canopy.
Each child then planted a tree with a parent or adult. Fiona Gibson, of Edinvale Farm Wee Shed Shop, served refreshments and a Jubilee biscuit.
Pupils are creating a survey to find out what the wider community would like to see grown in their Polycrub.
