Rustington pupils praised for enthusiasm for annual bulb planting

Schoolchildren in Rustington have impressed parish councillors with their enthusiasm for the annual bulb planting campaign.

Each year, Rustington Parish Council donates a quantity of bulbs to each of the three primary schools in the village and the children spring into action to make sure they go into the ground.
