Work is under way to develop our Eco-garden using the £10,500 that we have been awarded as part of the LIVE HERE, LOVE HERE Pollinator’s Grant Scheme! 

The initiative financed by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs is designed to allow community groups and schools across rural Northern Ireland to benefit from funding of up to £12,000 to enhance and develop a local pollinator garden.

Primary 7 have been busy painting old tyres which we are going to use as planters and Primary 4 have been involved in a Big Spring Clean! 

We hope that parents and grandparents can help out in the coming weeks to plant some flowers! If you are interested in volunteering please let your child’s teacher know and I will be in touch.

I look forward to updating you with our progress and to showing you some photos of the garden when work has been completed.

Thank you for your continued support!
