Great ideas created by the community, for the community. Pitch your project by 14th September 2022.
Daven Primary School's field is surrounded by an established woodland but it is not currently in a useable state. During high winds earlier this year several trees fell and the site is no longer safe for use. The woodland floor and pathways have become overgrown and impossible to pass and without expert attention the area will be totally inaccessible. We have had a survey and need to remove the fallen trees, large saplings and undergrowth so that we can access the paths and create useable space for play. We will also buy new equipment (eg. a fire pit and shelter) to use during sessions. Once the woodland is restored regular outdoor learning sessions will be introduced. Sessions like these are proven to benefit mental wellbeing. The Children's Centre (which is on our school site) will also use it for community sessions. Restoring the site will improve our biodivesity. This is a great opportunity to teach future generations about the benefits our woodlands can provide.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
- It will ensure that the woodland is available for use as a learning tool now and in the future for the school, Children's Centre and other community groups. - it will be used for mental wellbeing support groups - It will improve biodiversity on our site and ensure that the woodland remains a habitat for a wider variety of animals and plants.
