Local children planting seeds in Hemlington

Youngsters from two Middlesbrough schools showed their wild side by digging in to help the local environment.

Children from Viewley Hill and St Gerard’s Primary Schools in Hemlington helped Erimus Housing, the town’s largest landlord, boost flora and fauna in their community.

Pupils planted wild flower seeds in areas on the Hemlington estate in a bid to not only improve the area, but also to nurture bees and other wildlife.

The events were overseen by Vale Contract Services, which carries out grounds maintenance on behalf of Erimus Housing.

Susie Thompson, Group Director of Operations for Fabrick, the parent company of Erimus Housing, said: “We are not only committed to the green agenda, we want to work with schools to encourage youngsters to make a difference for their futures too.

“We are thrilled the children are proud of their neighbourhoods and are keen to take part and boost their own communities, which is something we teach on our Peer Kids citizenship programme in schools.”
