Volunteers refurbish school wildlife area

A WILDLIFE area at Woodcote Primary School has been reinvigorated.

The £2,000 overhaul was carried out by volunteers from the parent-teacher association and members of Woodcote Conservation Group.

The area now has a new pond filled with tadpoles, a “bug hotel” to attract bees and other insects, two benches, two beds containing meadow and woodland plants, a compost heap and an arch made from willow branches.

The pupils will use it for science projects such as wildlife surveys and teachers plan to find ways to incorporate it into other subjects.

Before the revamp, the area had not been used for many years and was badly neglected.
