Members of St Ivo School’s Eco Club helped add a touch of colour to the town by planting a batch of wildflowers.

More than 20 students were invited to help out at a cemetery in Westwood Road by the St Ives in Bloom team, tidying up and planting a variety of flowers.

The pupils will be returning to the cemetery in June to follow up on their planting and add more flowers.

Barbara Morey, who helps run the club, said that the work with St Ives in Bloom was only a small part of what the club, which is open to students in Years 7-13, do around the town.

She said: “We do a lot of work towards Fair Trade, we help out locally, and we are members of the Holt Island Nature Reserve.”
