Recycled greenhouse built at Kidderminster school
7:40am Friday 26th October 2012 in News
VOLUNTEERS have helped to build a recycled greenhouse made of plastic bottles for a Kidderminster primary school.
Eighteen employees of Kraft Foods’ Bournville manufacturing plant helped to construct the greenhouse and an outdoor shelter at Sutton Park Community Primary School.
The volunteers worked in two teams, the Fruit and Nuts and the Coffee Grinders, to help give something back to the community.
More than 1,500 bottles were used for the walls and roof of the greenhouse.
Michael Huggins, a community champion at Kraft Foods said: “It was a hard day’s work but we had a great time at the school and everyone was extremely accommodating, some of the year four pupils even cooked us pumpkin soup for lunch.”
The schoolchildren have previously worked on a number of projects linked to the recycling.
Julie Hardiman, forest school leader said: “We’re really grateful for all of the hard work that the Kraft Foods volunteers have put into making sure our new facilities are really high quality.”
