Mining Celebrated With a Display of Flowers

Mining Celebrated With a Display of FlowersIt is very unlikely that you would associate the dirty and difficult work of mining with flowers. As part of an environmental project, Doncaster schoolchildren decided to celebrate this difficult profession with a colourful display of flowers.

These youngsters created a flower bed that depicted a coal truck.

The students go assistance by staff from Doncaster Council’s east area neighbourhood to support team. The cabinet member for Doncaster Council Patrick Wilson said, “I would like to congratulate everyone who has taken part. This is a wonderful educational and environmental project for our children to have been involved in.”

“Not only have they been able to learn about mining history and their cultural heritage but they have created a fantastic display that can be enjoyed by the whole community.”

The students from this area have already done similar projects with the neighbourhood team and it is very likely that these kinds of projects will be spreading to other areas as well.
