INFANT school children put on their gardening gloves to plant new bushes at a country park.

Around 90 youngsters from Lee-on-the-Solent Infant School dug in to create a new hedgerow at the Alver Valley Country Park in Cherque Way.

The planting day was organised as part of a £17,500 community project run by the Lee-on-the-Solent Residents’ Association.

It was partly funded by the Veolia Environmental Trust which donated £16,000.

The six-month improvement project is due to be completed in the spring.

It aims to encourage more people to use the open spaces in the Alver Valley.
