Fruit trees gifted to school
Children from Exeter Road Primary School have been making their school even greener with the addition of some new fruit trees.
The trees were donated by Kings Garden Centre after the school appealed to local firms for plant donations.
The trees have been planted alongside the school’s vegetable garden, which was developed earlier this year with funds from Exmouth Raleigh Rotary Club and is currently being harvested.
Headteacher Paul Gosling said: “We’ve been trying to ‘green’ our very un-green site over the past year, so we contacted local businesses to see if they could help and Kings came up with the trees.
“The children have taken responsibility for them – planting, watering and weeding them.

“It’s all tied in with trying to get children to think about where their food comes from, how important fruit and vegetables are and how easy it is to grow them.”
