We have a few bags of garden and other waste that need taking away. Please let us know if you can assist in any way. Even taking one bag away will be of great help! Thank you.
Thanks to Tree Tech Christchurch for coming to take down a few of our trees. Now we will have lots of sun to help our vegetables and plants grow! We will be using the logs to create seats for the children, the branches to make some bug hotels and animal homes and the chippings will be used for our vegetable garden.
Thank you so much to all of you who showed some love to your school on Valentine's Day and came along in your wellies to help us begin to clear the site!

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 416 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 26 September to 9 October on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. In total, there is over £12.5 million up for grabs.
