Due to Covid we had to postpone this project until 2020/21.

March 2021

Ranger Paul and his volunteers completed the garden project at Iver Heath Infant School in March and created a beautiful environment for the children to explore.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the fabulous work you and your team have completed at the entrance area to our school. It looks amazing! Those who were involved had a great time. There has also been lots of chatter around school about all of the new things that the children have spotted on their way in, so thank you for doing such an amazing job.

June 2020

Ranger Paul, Artist Ranger Dan and Volunteer Perry started our schools work again in the middle of June 2020 as part of our postponed Buckinghamshire Council Wexham And Ivers In and Out of Schools Project.

Before lock down Paul worked with some year 1 students to enhance their grounds for wildlife and learning. The children were so happy to see us and in their ‘bubbles’ helped us to create a bird hide and bird feeder sculpture, renovate their allotment area, plant currant bushes for the currant clearwing, a disease resistant elm for the White Letter Hairstreak and much more! If you live in that area please plant currants and elm when appropriate in your own gardens to help us create a network of habitat for these species as well as saying no to mow and creating pollinator patches etc! We are going to Iver Heath Junior and Infant schools soon to do similar habitat work with them. One of the lovely things about the project is that the Head teachers have wanted to focus on giving opportunities to their student in receipt of pupil premium, giving these students who often need that extra little bit of support, a much needed boost.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team. It looks great out there, you all worked so hard. We will look after it!!
