Pupils at Ashdown Primary School had an exciting day on Monday when they planted trees in the field opposite their junior site on Herne Road.
The “rewilding” project on the land opposite the cemetery will provide a wildlife area for the children to learn and play in.
Head of School Laura Masson said:
All 270 children were involved in planting the area, which will eventually include an orchard, seating areas, wildflower meadow and scrub as well as the trees planted this week.
All the work was done strictly abiding to the current Covid Safety Rules in place at the school.
The school was kindly supported by Chaffin Works, the East Sussex landscaping firm, who are planting the remainder of the 400 trees that are needed.
