He said: “The pupils brought in more than 1,300 plastic bottles to make the walls of the greenhouse and I hope that as they grow older they will remember this project and the positive impact recycling can have on the environment.

“And for the school we are so pleased to have helped them get their first greenhouse which will be here for years to come and help with the children’s education as they learn where food comes from and growing it themselves.”
