Eco Club - Week Ending 8th December
The Eco Club have been concentrating all their efforts on the chicken area over the last few weeks!
New protection/fencing is slowly being added ready for the new year!
Eco Club - 21st November
In their second Eco Club the hard working Eco Warriors and Gardners continued the unending task of clearing and tidying areas around school. They also laid the slabs to make a path in the chicken area and made a start on cleaning out the pond! They were amazed at some of the items they retrieved!
Eco Club! 14th November
'The first Eco Club which is now made up of Gardeners as well as Eco Warriors, went really well! Everyone worked really hard clearing the first part of the chicken area and laying down 2 bags of bark!
The aim of the club is to develop this area into a free range area for the chickens, take control of the recycling of paper / food waste around school and monitor the use of water / electricity.
We were lucky enough to receive just under £3000 from our local Co-op fund raising scheme earlier in the year. This money has so far paid for 3 large skips to clear away a green house, shed and lots of rubbish. We also had a Tree company come in to clear a large tree and tidy up what will be our Eco area. Hockley Woods are going to come in and place some solid oak posts in the ground so we can start to build a meeting hut for us to enjoy!
As mentioned, the Co-op included us in their Community Funding scheme in 2016 and have kindly included us again! The scheme will run until next October! If you have a Co-op membership card, please go on line and register with us. If you don't have a card, you can purchase one for £1 in store. You get 5% back on your shopping and 1% for our school. It's a great scheme and we as a school can benefit immensely from it. So please, if you can, purchase a card and help support Plumberow!
We will keep you updated on our progress as we go along!'
