CHILDREN at Marpool School in Exmouth are learning about healthy eating thanks to the combined efforts of teachers and supermarket staff.

Community Champion for the Tesco store on Salterton Road, Helen Joscelyne, has just started helping pupils to dig and plant a garden - with seeds provided by the supermarket giant as part of its School Gardens scheme.

Helen Joscelyne said:" I have been working with local schools to encourage children to eat healthily. I really like to get involved and help in a practical way and so decided to do some hands-on gardening with them.
