Panic over – we haven’t been invaded by carrier bag wielding aliens! The first phase of lots of exciting outdoor developments started this Saturday after a group of very kind volunteers gave up their time to plot the first of many planting spaces.
Mr Hulme -Duvall tells us more,
‘Amazingly the Sun shone and the rain held off for the first working party. With volunteer Mums and Dads mucking in to help make a wildlife corridor to connect the School grounds. This first phase starts with the transformation of the school grounds around the Eyam Road path, helping to form a relaxing area in which the children can discover the delights of wild flower meadows, orchards, herb and flower gardens. Free trees supplied from the Woodland Trust will form the basis of our new forage trail and wildlife corridor, and help to link the various parts of the school grounds. Future plans include a large insect and butterfly garden, forage walk with bird feeding stations, pond and re vamped woodland area. Again many thanks to those who gave up their Saturday to help in this first working party.
We hope you enjoy the photos of the mornings work.’
