Councillors help school increase their wildlife habitat
February 7, 2019
Eastlea Primary School’s ambition to create a wildflower and wildlife sanctuary has received the support of local councillors Christine and Norman Dunbar who have generously funded some Beebombs.
These are seed-filled pellets that are scattered onto cleared ground to create a wildflower meadow and contain a mix of 18 British wildflowers.
Increasing the wildflower habitat makes an important contribution to biodiversity and the pupils are hoping to see an increase in the natural bee and butterfly habitat around the school and its environs.
Norman and Christine Dunbar are pictured handing the Beebombs over to Susan Henderson and pupils from the school.
