SUPERMARKET staff have literally dug deep to help a Fareham infant school.

Fifteen staff members from Sainsbury’s Broadcut, in Fareham, and Sainsbury’s Farlington spent the day at Ranvilles Infant School, on Oldbury Way, helping the school set up an allotment.

Deputy headteacher Stacey Barnes said: ‘We have been developing our early years outdoor area and as part of that we wanted to create an allotment. Sainsbury’s very kindly provided us with the manpower. It was great to have them.’

Linda Langdon, from Sainsbury’s, said: ‘It was very good and all the children came out to have a look and they were getting really excited about the prospect of doing some planting.’

The school has also set up a weather station and installed other outdoor learning activities.
