Barton Le Clay Pre-school are embarking on Forest School training to further develop the children’s activities, after the success of their nature garden.

The Pre-school received lots of donations from local businesses for the garden.

The nature garden was created thanks to a donation of land from Ramsey Manor Lower school and a grant from Central Bedfordshire council.

Ms Wardle, chairperson for the pre-school, said: “The Headteacher and governors granted the preschool use of a bit of land out the front of our building for us to create our very own new natural environment for the children to explore. This has been a fantastic opportunity that we are so grateful for.

“Mill End Nursery started the ball rolling by donating lots of bedding plants to fill our tyre planters, Wright Bros Fencing suppliers, Clophill, then gave us some trellis for the clematis around our pond area.

“Newbury Farm, Silsoe, gave us a fruit tree and lots of grass plants. Flitvale Garden Centre gave us tons of herbs which we used to fill up our pallet herb garden and Homebase, Bramingham, gave us lots of watering cans for the children to use.

“We are very grateful for all of these kind donations and look forward to seeing the garden change through the seasons.”
