PEOPLE interested in local wildlife can now read about what’s in the Littleham area, thanks to a new heritage board which has been produced by school children.

Youngsters from Littleham Primary, in Littledown Close, helped produce pencil drawings and watercolours of plants and animals which feature on the board.

The educational sign, located near Castle Lane, was unveiled by mayor Darryl Nicholas and councillor Eileen Wragg last week.

Leigh Dickinson, teaching assistant at the primary school said: “We were asked, some time ago, by the Littleham in Bloom team if we could produce some artwork.

“They are all to do with animals and plants that we find on our heritage coast.

“The children did watercolours and pencil drawings. They were then sent to the Littleham in Bloom team, who chose five of them to go on the board.”

Leigh added: “They were, initially, only going to select three, but because they were all so good they chose a couple more.

“They studied some of the animals and plants before doing the drawings. It was a couple of weeks work in total.”
