Green-fingered children from the Eco Club at Morpeth First School have used their skills to turn an old barrow at Sanderson Arcade into a fantastic floral display.

The eight and nine-year-olds used a mixture of geraniums, petunias, begonias, fuchsias, helichrysum, bacopa and lobelia to transform the unused item.

The barrow is now positioned in the landscaping area at the back entrance of the Arcade.

The children were helped by horticulturist Raymond Dixon.
