GREEN-FINGERED youngsters from a Scarborough school have been digging away in flower beds to create a real explosion of colour.

The pupils from Seamer and Irton Primary School got to work in Bell Close, in Seamer, alongside representatives from Willmott Dixon, Yorkshire Coast Homes and Scarborough Council to plant bulbs ahead of next summer.

Headteacher Jonathan Wanless said: “The children loved helping out with the bulb planting, and will be pleased with their hard work next spring when the bulbs bloom.”

Melanie Watson, Willmott Dixon’s Scarborough customer and community officer added: “We are always keen to leave a lasting legacy in the areas where we work and the bulb planting is a fantastic way of ensuring the area is bright and colourful.

“We approached Yorkshire Coast Homes for help and they were only too happy to lend a hand and the whole team thoroughly enjoyed bringing a smile to residents’ faces.”
