Pupils at Busy Bees Preschool and Nursery were joined by their elders as part of Grandparents Gardening Week.

Helping the youngsters to plant seeds, flowers and vegetables with the aim of passing on their expertise, there were smiles and giggles all-round as old and young got stuck in.

Two-year-old Penny Thornton was busy sowing vegetables 
while Jenny Whitmore helped 
her 13-month-old granddaughter Ava Seretny get hands on 
with potted plants.

The nursery has been open since 2003 and looks after youngsters aged up to five years old.
