TRAINEE sailors from HMS Sultan took on some landscaping challenges for a nearby school.

A group of air engineering technicians from the Gosport naval base shouldered a number of gardening tasks for Holbrook Primary School in the town.

Along with general clearing and weeding, the trainees created areas for youngsters to try composting and growing their own vegetables.

AET Ben Newson, 19, said: ‘The work we have done will help the children learn about keeping plants healthy, composting and recycling.

‘With the summer coming up it will be really good to see the children able to get outside and learn about plants in general.’

Headteacher Tracy Potter added: ‘The naval trainees have been amazing. We can’t thank them enough.’
