CHILDREN aged three and four have rejuvenated the back garden area of Sutton Methodist Church Hall.

The youngsters, who are pupils of the Butterfly Pre-School and the Caterpillar Toddler Group, made a small garden, planted fruit and vegetables, painted fences and helped build a pond and bench.

Butterfly Pre-School manager, Joanna Spencer, said: "They've done a fantastic job and the garden looks brilliant. One girl, who is nearly four, even managed to work out how to put the table together when the adults were struggling to figure it out."

After the work was finished, there was a cake stall and a raffle was held.
