A pre-school is having its garden redesigned complete with a Gruffalo path thanks to a £7,500 grant from Tesco’s Bags for Life scheme.
James Biddlecombe, owner of Biddy and Sons Ltd, based in Cormorant Walk, Hornchurch, has undertaken the project for St Georges Church Centre nursery, in Chippenham Road, Harold Hill, and has drafted in the nursery’s pupils give him a hand.
“It’s going to be a Gruffalo path and there will be different sections going off to different areas,” said James. “We are making benches out of trees, a vegetable patch, mud kitchen and I’ve got someone creating a hand made Gruffalo.”
The children were clearly excited to see work on their new garden get underway and James hopes he can meet their expectations.
“They didn’t stop talking and calling me, it’s like being back at home with my kids! I enjoy it because it is for the kids, that’s the main reason why we accepted the job. It’s not about us earning money it’s about giving the kids what they want.”
