A Hull nursery is to benefit from over £4,000 in lottery money.

The grant will help fund a project for families and children to construct a greenhouse out of plastic bottles.

The Big Lottery Fund’s £4,320 will aid McMillan Nursery on Eleventh Avenue, north Hull, with part of it going towards building an eco-friendly cob oven and greenhouse.

The project should give children a fun outdoor introduction to sustainable living, recycling, food and energy.

Adele Mabley, an early years practitioner, says the nursery is “delighted” to get the funding.

She says that such schemes are not only enjoyable for children, they help get their relatives involved with the school too.

Ms Mabley says the scheme will expand everybody involved’s sustainable living knowledge, for pupils and parents alike.

She hopes that it will have a knock-on effect in children’s homes, so there could be a raft of bottle cob ovens and greenhouses throughout the city.

The McMillan Nursery project is among 165 Humberside and Yorkshire schemes benefiting from a £1,378,815 Award For All kitty.

The Big Lottery Fund’s England director, Lyn Cole, says that Award For All’s initiatives benefit communities and individuals alike in a variety of ways.

Ms Cole says that the pop-bottle greenhouse scheme besides a football project for toddlers are among the 165 initiatives that should enrich hundreds of people’s lives throughout Humberside and Yorkshire.
