Rainbow’s End Pre-school, in Ingoldmells, has been working to ‘cultivate’ an interest in plants among its youngsters.

Staff and children recently welcomed parents and two staff members from the local branch of Tesco to help them plant fruit and vegetables at the site.

Callie Thorne, pre-school deputy manager, thanked all those who had supported the Big Dig Little Dig event, adding: “The children will be developing their understanding of the world by watching the plants change and grow.

“In September, we will be harvesting the crops and using them for exploration and in our cooking.”
