East Budleigh kids muck in

Children and parents all mucked in to prepare Drake’s School’s allotments for next year at the annual Big Dig.

The East Budleigh allotments, opposite Salem Chapel, were gifted to the school by landowners Clinton Devon Estates.

Headteacher Carron Saunders said: “The Big Dig is something we do every autumn.

“The whole school and even parents come along and get involved.

“It’s really a concerted effort to get the heavy work done so, over the next few weeks, the children can start planting appropriate seeds and plants in preparation for next year.”
