Eco Committee spruces up local community area
14 November 2023
As part of the Eco Committee's mission to improve the school and the local environment, it has linked up with South Ribble Borough Council.
The Committee recently met with Cllr Will Adams to discuss how they could help maintain Middleforth Gardens, a community area just off Haverick Road in Penwortham.
Last Friday, Mrs Massey and four keen Year 8 pupils visited the site and got to work on sprucing it up. The team of five spent two hours clearing litter, tackling overgrown planters, planting bulbs and clearing away dead grass around the trees.
Science teacher and Committee leader, Mrs Massey said, "In the future we hope to go back and do some more maintenance. We are also looking into providing some bird boxes for the area."
Well done to Charlie T, Max S, Kenzie S, Harley F-N who really impressed South Ribble Borough Council.
Community Development Officer, Jane Charlton said, "The boys were brilliant and did a great job planting bulbs too. They were a credit to the school!"
