New Wildlife Garden
Transformation project next to the Key Stage 1 outside area.
An enormous thank you to the staff, friends and family who gave their time on Saturday to start the transformation of an unused area of land next to the KS1 playground.
The aim is to provide a wildlife garden for the children to enjoy, as well as an opportunity to learn about mini-beasts, plants and the environment . We have planted shrubs and flowers which not only look pretty but which should encourage wildlife to flourish.
The transformation of the site has been possible due to the incredible generosity of individuals in the local community who freely gave their skills, plants or materials to the project. Also those who gave their time and unrelenting energy to sourcing free products and services. A couple of local companies were also happy to donate, notably Homebase, who provided several plants specifically chosen to attract wildlife.
Individual donations were the driving force behind changing the site, but listed below are the local organisations and companies who kindly supported the ‘From desert to safari’ project:
Freecycle Network- your generosity was awesome!

Keep an eye on the garden over the next couple of weeks when the second phase of the project will hopefully be completed!
