Nature's the winner after Lottery boost
FIVE primary schools in Truro have benefited from a lottery cash windfall to support green-fingered pupils.
Truro in Bloom secured funding to provide child-sized gardening tools, bee hotels, bird boxes, feeders and bat boxes.
Archbishop Benson Primary School, Bosvigo, St Mary's, Tregolls and Treyew all benefited from the new tools. Leaps and Bounds Nursery School also benefited, as did four care homes, Amberley House, St George's Hotel, Tregolls Manor and Lowena Respite Centre.
In total, £1,840 was awarded to Truro in Bloom by the Big Lottery Fund, and all the presentations were attended by former mayor Lindsay Southcombe to highlight her mayoral year's theme of supporting bees.
