A garden at Samarès School created in the memory of pupil Holly Deegan who sadly died six years ago has been refurbished with the help of staff from State Street.
The garden is popular with the children, and an employee of States Street who has children at school suggested giving it a makeover would be a worthwhile project for her workmates.
The 17-strong team cleared areas to create more space, repainted the playhouse and varnished benches. New turf was laid and flower beds planted as part of the redesign project.
A number of Jersey businesses also did their bit by kindly their time, materials and plants. They were: Normans, WP Recycling Ltd, Voluntary Team from Blue Watch – Jersey Fire and Rescue, New Lawns, St Peter's Garden Centre, Ransom's Garden Centre, B&Q, Pathways and Doucet Garden Services.
The Managing Director of State Street in Jersey, Mike Newton, said: "This was an ideal community project for a number of our staff and I know everyone who gave their time is enormously glad to have played a part making the area more spacious for the children. It was very hard but rewarding work. Our teams went back several times and the Jersey Fire Service kindly helped to trim the trees that where flourishing over the garden."
