Wildflowers in the Meadow

Last year one of our parents, Sophie Rawlinson, co-ordinated and worked hard on, the planting of a range of fruit trees planted which we hope will provide fruit for the children in years to come. 

The next stage in the plan was to found a wildflower meadow to help the area to grow and thrive. 

Wildflowers provide lots of things that insects need: food in the form of leaves, nectar and pollen, also shelter and places to breed. In return, insects pollinate the wildflowers, enabling them to develop seeds and spread to grow in other places.

Parents, staff and children took part in an a took part in the well-planned socially distanced planting session and then some of the volunteers also took part in Southway Housing's wildflower meadow planting in the local area the following day.

Well done to all those who took part and we can't wait to see the results of your hard work when the flowers grow next year.
