Hartford plants for the future at Arbory School

Thursday 19th November 2015 | Developments | Cronk Cullyn, Colby

Arbory School pupils braved the blustery weather this week to help Hartford Homes staff plant trees in the school’s grounds.

Hartford builders from the nearby Cronk Cullyn development in Colby were joined by year two pupils to plant saplings in the car park and playing fields.

Arbory Primary School’s Headteacher Jonathan Ayres said “We are fortunate that we have large grounds which are used extensively for lessons as well as play times. We are always looking for opportunities to develop the grounds and instil in the children the importance of trees to both our local environment and to the planet.”

He added “Over a number of years, we have raised money for the World Land Trust to buy nearly 14 acres of threatened tropical rainforest. The tree planting by Hartford Homes enables us to reinforce this message nearer to home and improve the environment for local wildlife.”

Earlier this year, Hartford donated and built a mud kitchen at Arbory School as part of an ongoing project to boost its outdoor play area and equipment.

Hartford Homes director James Greenhalgh said: “We’re delighted to be able to continue supporting the school, with more plans coming soon.”

Cronk Cullyn sits behind the Colby Glen Pub and the local shop and will feature a wide range of new homes from 2 bed bungalows to 4 and 5 bed family houses, along with a fully-equipped play area. There are just 16 of the 62 homes available to buy and the show home is due to open soon.
