    Published 21/03/17, by Louise Nicholson

    Thank you so much to everyone who came along to our fundraiser today. We had lots to buy and look at. The children had created bird seed fat balls; amazing animal cup cakes; beautiful painting and their was even a game to win a hedgehog, We gave away lots on information leaflets telling people how they could help wildlife in their own gardens. After a technical hitch with the speakers, the event was rounded off buy the premier of the children's wildlife videos.

    We are delighted to say that the event raised £99 which will be split equally between the RSPB and the school nature garden refurbishment. Thank you

    Thank you to Arden Farms who made it possible for us to take part in 'Tractors into schools day'. Wehad a great time learning about the different roles of tractors throughout the seasons.
