School Woodlands

Rob Marks, teacher at Marton Primary School, spoke to the Annual Village Meeting about the Forest School project

Thank you very much for the opportunity to introduce myself and explain how we at the school would like to get involved in the Marton community. As discussed Pete Webborn and myself have set out some dates during which we would like to set up a working party in the school grounds.

During these sessions we would like to complete a variety of tasks including: clearing paths, clearing out brambles and nettles, creating useable outdoor spaces and making the woodlands safe for the children to use. As mentioned we will be sure not to damage any habitats.

The dates that we have put in the diary are:

  • Saturday 1st April 1330- 1630
  • Wednesday 12th April 1600-1900
  • Wednesday 3rd May 1800-2100

Please bring gloves and any gardening equipment that you are happy to use. We will be able to burn the rubbish on site. Tea and cake will be provided.
