In pictures: Plant Power! with Western Road Primary School​

A Saturday in February saw Western Road students take over Lewes Climate Hub to celebrate growing, gardening and to showcase their projects to increase biodiversity in their school grounds. Thanks to all the pupils and teachers for a great day!

Over the last couple of years pupils and staff at Western Road CP School have been working hard to expand the range and the variety of nature within the school grounds, from planting a new hedgerow, to starting a forest school, and working with Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft to plant a ‘dye garden’ to make dyes for school craft projects.

Last month, pupils showcased their achievements at Lewes Climate Hub with a Saturday of displays, craft activities, and seed and card stalls. The Hub was delighted to welcome pupils, teachers, families, friends and members of the public to enjoy all their fantastic work – here are some pictures from the day.

Deputy head Rea Hamilton said: “It was a wonderful day and so marvellous to see all of the children so engaged with the creative activities. Thank you so much to Lewes Climate Hub for letting us use the fantastic space.”

We hope Western Road can come back soon – if you are part of a local school or college that would like to showcase your nature and climate action activities at the Hub, do get in touch at .
