St Cuthbert’s RC First School early years pupils have created their own vegetable patch.

The early years children at St Cuthbert’s RC First School in Tweedmouth, a future member of the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust, have not shied away from the hard work involved in growing great vegetables – planting everything from radishes to peppers into the school’s raised beds.

The pupils tended to their crops every week during the summer term.

Clare McGregor, headteacher at the school, said: “The children absolutely loved being in the garden and watching things grow, as well as enjoying the fruits of their labours when the vegetables were ready to eat.”
