A nature area at Lympstone Primary School has been given a makeover thanks to a generous donation and ‘hard working’ volunteers. 

The ‘nature school’ is now easier to use for pupils and teachers alike.

Headteacher Emily Mellor said: “Thanks to a generous donation and some hard -working volunteers and staff, we were able to lay new gravel paths and create new planting beds.  

“This has made Nature School so much easier to use as before it was a mud bath. 

“The children can now use Nature School for Forest schooling, digging, planting, problem solving and team work. They love nothing more than to dig and build dens. 

“We are so grateful to everyone who came to help and especially to Bradfords who delivered the gravel in their own time and free of charge.  

“You have all helped to make a really big difference.”
