A school's garden has been transformed to try and help boost the declining bee population.
Pupils from St James Primary School in Emsworth built their own garden with flowers to attract bees and improve school grounds.
Staff from Southern Electric joined the pupils as part of the company's Community at Heart scheme that encourages all their employees to spend a work day supporting community projects.
The day also involved teaching pupils about sustainability and the importance of bees to our environment.
Bruce Waelend, Head Teacher at St. James Primary School said: “It’s great when the children can be involved in something that not only improves their school environment but also allows them to learn something about nature and engage in something practical.
The kids have had a great day as well as the teachers; we really appreciate the time offered by the Southern Electric staff.”
