Homes for Wildlife

Last Friday, Hilary, Alison and children from years 3, 4 and 5 spent an enjoyable and very productive morning in Buckle's Wood.

They put mulch round trees, planted small plugs of celandine, cowslips, snowdrops and bluebells at the base of the hedgerow near the school's trees and arranged hedge cuttings and logs in heaps, in order to attract more wildlife into our woodland.

We hope that the log pile shown in the photo, will attract Stag Beetles which can be found in Suffolk, but are becoming quite rare.

Our Next Working Party

Everyone is invited to come and join our next working party on Saturday 10th May, starting at 10 o'clock. There will be plenty of homemade refreshments and a soupy lunch to keep your energy levels up! Stay for a short time, or keep going until the work is done--we don't mind.

Please bring a fork and wheelbarrow if you would like to put mulch around our trees, or loppers and and a pair of secateurs for alternative activities.

We have received grant funding from The Green Light Trust to spend on introducing wild flowers into the woodland. We need to prepare small suitable areas, so that we can plant in the autumn. We shall start this work on Saturday as well.
