Following the devastating, untimely and tragic death of our lovely Freya in April, we decided as a school (and with full cooperation from Freya’s family) to honour Freya’s memory by creating a special space that all our pupils will have access to.
Freya was passionate about nature, wildlife and gardening. Therefore we feel that it is wholly appropriate to dedicate our already wonderful pond area, to make it even better, and for everyone to use.
The space will be called ‘Freya’s Garden’.
Thanks to your kind and generous donations (we raised £1,500) we are now able to move forward with the project. We have also had a kind donation from a parent offering to donate signage for the area. We will be carrying out this project in conjunction with Froglife. Darren from the charity has been to school for a follow up visit and is in close contact with us. We have made a start on the area thanks to a volunteer over the Christmas holiday so it really is now work in progress. We are asking for volunteers to come and support Darren on 18th January.
The project will include:
We are asking for a team of volunteers please on 18th January.
We need a team of approximately 12 adults.
This will include clearing the pond and the immediate surrounding area so we need people willing to get stuck in, including some who are willing to get into the pond with chest waders on.
As well as people power , we also need the following please:
We would love to gather some community spirit for our project to happen.
Anything you can offer would be gratefully received – baking for the workers, people willing do tea and coffee runs, any other suggestions welcome.
Dry weather would also be a bonus!
Please email me on email@example.com if you can offer any support in any way.
Thank you to those who have already been in contact.
