CHILDREN have been busy creating a landscaped garden at the centre where they study.

The new garden at The Lennox Centre, in Gosport, has been designed and landscaped by the pupils.

It includes a wild area for birds, badgers and bugs.

There is also a vegetable plot and a rainbow garden filled with colourful flowers.

Portsmouth recycling firm L&S Waste Management donated two-and-a-half tonnes of soil to help build the centre’s garden.

The Lennox Centre works with children who have difficulty settling into mainstream school and are at risk of exclusion. It aims to keep them in mainstream education.

Deputy leader of Hampshire County Council, Cllr Roy Perry, said: ‘As well as specialist support from staff, the physical environment of the centre in which pupils are taught plays an important part in their learning process.

‘I would like to thank L&S for its generous donation.

‘I am sure the pupils will get a great deal of pleasure out of the garden project.’
