Babworth Crematorium team up with local school for bulb planting

by Crematorium Editor Westerleigh News

Babworth Crematorium teamed up with local children from Prime 8 School for a fun few days of bulb planting.

Prime 8 is a local alternative learning provider that supports children who have struggled in mainstream learning environment.

The professional team at Babworth Crematorium pride themselves on developing strong relationships with their local communities and were keen to get involved with the school to provide a positive engagement and development opportunity for the pupils.

Babworth Crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group, the UK’s largest owner and operator of crematoria and cemeteries, with 36 sites in England, Scotland, and Wales, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens of remembrance which provide pleasant, peaceful places for people to visit and reflect.

Amanda Carr, site manager at Babworth Crematorium, said: “We were planning on a few planting projects on our grounds and through the Retford Lions we got in touch with local volunteer groups and schools who might be interested in getting involved with the projects.

“Prime 8 were really keen to take part and provide their pupils with a valuable and fun experience so important for their development.

“Pupils did a stellar job, they really embraced all the tasks, so much so, they have now been here on three separate occasions, plug planting around our pond and daffodil planting on our grounds. Each time has been a great success and extremely enjoyable for everyone involved.

“We are keen to team up with the children from Prime 8 again and are currently looking into more projects we could do together in the new year.”
