Hemel Hempstead MP Sir Mike Penning has praised Hemel Lions on their recent donation to Galley Hill Primary School in Gadebridge.
The Lions donated £1,500 to fund a three-day living willow project. Willowpool Designs visited the school to work with individual pupils from Nursery to Year 6 to create two living willow sculptures for the playgrounds and a wishing tree inside the school.
Head teacher Ms Birch said:
“This has been great fun and the children have learned a lot during this creative process. We are very grateful to the Hemel Lions and to Willowpool Designs. These living sculptures will take root and grow and be here for years to come.”
Sir Mike Penning said:
“Hemel Lions do a great job and I am delighted that they have funded this project. The sculptures take the form of a tunnel and a wigwam and will be great fun for the children in the summer.
“I look forward to seeing how these sculptures come to life in the spring and how they progress over the coming years.”
