This week, we have started getting the children to have a look at our new pond area. There is still some planting to be done to make the area into a woodland garden and give some colour but the project is largely complete. It couldn’t have been achieved without support from lots of places: the members of the PTA like Mrs Mosses, Mrs Sharkey who was part of the planning, our local District Council, Transform Landscaping who did the work, and the Fircroft Trust. I would like to say a big thank you on behalf of the whole school community to two people. Firstly, Mr Brian Rogerson, one of our grandparents, who came in over the summer holidays to oversee the beginning of the work while I was on a sun lounger in Barcelona. Secondly, to the man who project managed the whole affair and made sure that everything was kept on time and on budget – a massive undertaking all done voluntarily to support us - Mr David Williams. Thank you to all involved. I know this area will be of great value to our children into the future.
