Green-fingered pupils at Dowson Primary School were rewarded for their horticultural talents with £500 from Hyde District Assembly.

Chair of Hyde and Longdendale DA Councillor Philip Fitzpatrick, along with Councillor Andy Kinsey, attended a special assembly at the Marlborough Road school to present the children with the cheque.

The school is currently working to reapply for its ECO flag in an effort to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

This has been helped by the recent installation of a new roof on the lower school building.
