Developing our Gardens

We are working as a team with pupils, staff, governors, families and friends of Newfield - to improve our outdoor spaces and enhance the outdoor learning opportunities for all.

Last week after school on Thursday evening staff stayed behind to prepare the ground, in readiness for a delivery of whips to plant, which will eventually grown into a hedgerow and give the site some shelter and nature for wildlife.

This week, the garden gang got together to plant over 200 whips. We had a good turn out of pupils, staff and governor Fiona and family, and it involved a lot of hard work but we’ve done it!

Our governor Fiona has managed to find a company that is willing to give us some bark to cover the bases of the trees, and the trees themselves came for free from a project via the Tree Council.

More trees are arriving on 16th and 17th March from Ribble Rivers Trust so we really need some volunteers to help out!

If you have any time to support digging and planting, we’d love to hear from you and similarly if you know of anyone who has plants or any garden related things that they could donate, please do get in touch and join our ‘Garden Gang’!
