Hipperholme Grammar School’s Early Years Department recently held its annual summer party event.

This year the celebrations were based around a “Garden Party” and the day was rounded off by the official opening of a new planting space.

Cathy Roper (retired Hipperholme teacher) was invited to officially open the garden.

A spokesman said: “The school has continued to develop its facilities and the experiences it offers, and this year its focus was to create a growing space.

“The children wanted the area to encourage wildlife, be beautiful, colourful and a space to learn about how to grow different plants.”
