New tools for old at B&Q

26th March 2015

Young gardeners from Streatham’s Hitherfield Primary School received some very special tools at B&Q West Norwood recently for their Edible Playground. After B&Q held a tool amnesty at some of its stores, the tools had been repaired at Wandsworth Prison through Tools Shed.

The children were delighted with their tools.  Also in the picture are from left: Yvonne Morris, Hitherfield’s Eco Council coordinator, Jenny Hindson from Trees for Cities (which runs the Edible Playground project), Lee Tattersall, Manager of B&Q West Norwood and James Coleman from The Conservation Foundation.

In exchange for the tools, the children presented Lee with some beautiful thank you cards. Here are a couple.
