Nursery gains new garden from donated Recyclebank points

Recycling points donated to Maidenhead Nursery will help children create a 'keyhole' garden.

The School Lane nursery has benefited from more than 200,000 Recyclebank points donated by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead residents to the Green Schools Programme.

Headteacher Helen McHale said: "Keyhole gardens are an excellent way to introduce sustainable principles such as composting.

"Our aim is to raise awareness and understanding in our children of the diversity of cultures within the school and local community whilst teaching them about sustainability and growing their own food."

The school earned £1,000 to put towards the garden, with £5 for every 500 points donated.
