INFANT school pupils brought a splash of colour to a business complex by planting an array of flowers.

Fifteen green-fingered youngsters aged between four and seven from Fairfield Infant School in Havant put bulbs in the grounds of Langstone Technology Park in Portsmouth – and will be invited back later in the term to see them in full bloom.

The project which took place earlier this month formed part of the school’s drive to encourage children to take an interest in their environment.

Emma Bray, business excellence co-ordinator at Langstone, which is managed by Fasset Ltd, said: ‘I was delighted to welcome the pupils onsite to brighten the park with lovely flowers.

‘I hope they have enjoyed the experience as much as we have.’

The flowers should encourage some exciting insects and butterflies to the site and add to the summer ambience around the place.

Viv James, a teacher at Fairfield who accompanied the children, said: ‘We had a fabulous morning.

‘This is a great chance for the children to learn more about gardening and the environment.’

The flowers were donated by Blendworth, the garden contractors for the site.
