Heather, on Monday morning, visited Findern Primary School to meet the Headteacher, Mrs Fox and to be shown the newly opened Eco-Garden by the lead teacher, Ms Caroline Preston and the students who are members of the Eco Committee team.
“On my Tour of schools I visited another lovely primary school, we are lucky in South Derbyshire! I really enjoyed meeting the students in the Eco Committee team – who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of frogs and newts in the pond they built with volunteer workers from East Midlands Airport. We looked thoroughly but none to be seen yet.
“My congratulations to Findern School for applying for the East Midland Airport grant; for successfully winning it; and, for putting it to such good use - a charming environment to learn how to take care of the environment. I was particularly fascinated by the ‘Bug Hotel’ which is one of the ways the school spent the grant. A lovely morning visit before rushing down on the train to Westminster.”
