PUPILS have transformed a garden into a tranquil haven.
The Wind in the Willows garden at Therfield First School was restored by 19 eight-year-olds after a donation of £700 from Therfield Thespians, from its production of The Wind in the Willows.
During recent weeks pupils cut back ivy, repaired a flint wall, picked up litter, removed varnish from an old bench and painted trellis.
The friends of the school have added a pond.
The aim of the project was to improve the environment while allowing pupils to deal with a range of issues including litter, noise, recycling and water.
They took part in a water workshop run by Three Valleys Water Company to understand about the present shortage. The company was so impressed by their efforts that it supplied drought resistant plants for the project.
