An eco greenhouse made from empty plastic drink bottles has been put up in the vegetable garden of a village school.

Newark Castle Rotary Club worked with the Liz Hobbs Group on the project at Flintham Primary School.

The chairman of the club's business partnership, Mr John Barker, said the greenhouse had been funded by Home Instead Senior Care ­— a company managed by one of the Rotary members.

"We have been responsible for providing 15 bottle greenhouses to local schools," he said.

"It is a great project and benefits the children in so many ways. At the same time it makes a real difference in the war on plastic waste."

The school's head, Mrs Kim Bartlett, said the greenhouse was a brilliant addition to their garden.

"We take great pride in recycling and developing our environment," she said.

"The children have had a great day helping to build and watching our greenhouse grow. Our Forest School Club, Gardening Club and Eco Team can't wait to use it and see what we can plant and grow for ourselves."
