Working closely with the school we are focussing on the transformation of the car park banks from grassy verges to a meadow habitat.  In time the verges will become a living bank of colour supporting a wider range of invertebrates and pollinating insects.

One year on and after another sowing of yellow rattle + other wildflowers, some harvested from 2022, we have a really established mini wildflower meadow. Thanks to all the pupils and teachers who helped with the sowing :)
