Wildlife Garden

Outline plan version2 tweetOur open morning on Saturday 19th September was a huge success.

Many thanks to all the parents and pupils who came along to help plant in the garden.  It was well attended and the weather could not have been kinder.

Here are some of the photographs taken.

The garden is now almost complete but is ready to be enjoyed by our pupils with immediate effect.

Many thanks to Lynn Hill for all her hard work and effort 🙂
