Lydbrook Primary School are designing a new wildlife area as part of the school grounds. The creation of this project, which will include a pond , will improve the environment and increase biodiversity. The project will enhance the learning of all children aged 2 – 11 and offer a hands-on, practical approach to learning.
The school’s nature club are currently designing the area with the help of the Forester’s Forest Heritage project.
Students in Year 7 at The Dean Academy would like to host a community tea party to celebrate the Royal Wedding in May.
“We plan to work with catering staff at the school to prepare a celebratory banquet(!) in the school canteen, where we can host members of the local community who have gathered together to watch the Royal Wedding on the big screen”.
The project is free multi-sports activities for 2 weeks throughout the summer holidays for the local communities based in Coleford. The Angus Buchanan Recreation Ground would allow us to use their grounds as it is a safe space that is under used and Freedom Leisure’s Active Communities Team will run the range of activities with our qualified coaching.
In addition, particularly for the older youth we would like to get them involved in volunteering and would include within the funding a Community Sport Leaders Award which the young people could obtain at the end of the project. The idea is to promote community cohesion and support the development of local youths in the area and reduce anti-social or criminal behaviour.
