together project
The objectives of the Growing Together project are:
Enable adults and children to have fun and develop together.
Cross the intergenerational divide.
Offer children a healthy and productive extracurricular activity.
Instil an interest in plants and where food comes from.
Learn basic gardening and teamwork skills.

Hayling Lions Club has generously donated funding
and in addition sponsored categories in

Help Hayling Children Grow

Please spare one hour per week to our Growing Together project.

We are looking for extra helpers at each of the Hayling Schools,
during the lunch break at the infant and junior schools,
and after school on Fridays at The Hayling College.

Infant and junior clubs run from about Easter to the end of July.

No great skills are required as we all learn together,
and the friendly resources of the Society are at your disposal.

All volunteers will be checked by the DBS,
Disclosure and Barring Service, formally the CRB.

If you are interested in finding out more please contact
Tony Athill on 023 92426049

With the aid of funding from The Big Tree Plant,
to comememorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee,
a new orchard of 60 trees was planted,
in the grounds of Hayling College.

After two years the trees are bearing fruit
promising a harvest of apples, pears and plums,
and a fitting tribute to the joint work
of students and HIHS members.

Pictured below are, from the left,
Students Storm Hedger, Harry Phillips, Nathan Dunne,
HIHS member Pete Burton,
Students Rachel Beaver, Aaron Marks
and HIHS member Ray Jones.
