Two children who lost their mum to cancer have helped create a garden in her memory.

Aiden and Jessica Halliday officially opened the piece of land at Siddal Primary School that they have played leading parts in transforming.
Their mum Justine lost her battle with breast cancer last May, aged 39.
She was a governor at the school where Aiden and Jessica’s older sister Chelsea also went and where they are pupils.
Money for the project has been raised through various activities at the school, including a sponsored silence, which collected £400.
The garden includez a growing area, a gazebo and story corner. The Justine Halliday memorial garden also has a flower bed in tribute to teaching assistant Wendy Senior, who died last year.
