Alfriston and Beaconsfield High Schools January 2021
Our joint partnership with Alfriston and Beaconsfield High continues to grow and we look forward to the time when the students can regularly join forces. Ranger Paul and Volunteer Karina have provided 7 work experience days with Year 9 and Post 16 groups at Alfriston with a focus on building the girls confidence and providing them a stepping stones towards developing their employability skills. The school has extensive grounds that we are developing for learning and wildlife habitat. The girls have coppiced, started restoring their pond, built dead hedges, sculptural bird feeders and on a special NCS day with Action for Youth planted much need native hedgerow etc etc! Beaconsfield High Students joined them a few times when it was safe to do so.
Thank you Paul – so much!
It was super to see you and also to see the great development in this project. The enjoyment is so great for the students because you make it fun and let them do things they probably do not do very often.Rachel Smith
Holtspur School and Butlers Court School January 2021
It is always lovely when students walk from school to their local nature reserve or woodland to make a difference in their own community. Year 5 and 6 key worker bubbles from Holtspur School have been helping coppice this year’s coup at Holtspur Bank and Year 5s from Butlers Court have cut down non-native laurel at Walkwood and spread the woodchip created over the worn central path. All students and staff worked with such energy and enthusiasm. Lovely to be able to give them a boost for their well-being in these difficult times.

You can do it!
We have worked with several other primary schools. With one we created a whole school hedgerow and we held a coppice and fence building day at Loudwater School with 120 pupils getting involved together with a great team of DBS checked volunteers. Thank you team!
