Dinnington High School welcomed workers from construction and property services company Willmott Dixon into the school to help refurbish the Mark Lovett Memorial Garden, which was built in memory of the much loved PE teacher.

As well as the workers from Willmott Dixon, we had hard-working and willing students put their hands up to develop the memorial garden.

A schools spokesman said: “The school would like to thank Lauren Hill, Adam Fish, Josh Fish, Lee Heery, Sam Hill, TJ Barber, Shaydy Holland Gough, Will Smith, Leah Frew and Rheanna Allsopp for all their hard work.

“It truly was a successful day as the memorial garden is now a fitting and lasting tribute to a very popular teacher who is still very much missed.

“As well as providing a fitting tribute to Mark Lovett, the project has also taught our students some valuable skills.

“The student volunteers had to show excellent communication skills to work as a team, a determination to work hard throughout the day and display technical gardening skills to a high standard.

“We would like to express our thanks to Willmott Dixon for their help in improving and supporting the Mark Lovett Memorial Garden and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
