PUPILS are now taking advantage of a fantastic new eco pond which will help diversify and inspire them during lessons.

Huttoft Primary School decided to set up the pond as part of their ongoing efforts to grow and maintain their eco silver status.

A parent from the school originally approached the company they worked for, May Gurney, about the idea to help the school build such a pond and the project continued from there.

Alison Hurrell, Headteacher, said: “We are delighted with the pond and the community effort that went in for us to have it.

“I want to thank everyone for all the hard work that went in to setting up the pond.”

The project began back in March this year and is now completed ready for the school to use.

Coy Carp fish were due to be put into the pond this week and moth, butterfly and bird boxes were also installed around the areas.

Many of the items needed for the area was donated by the parents and the pond liner was donated by Trusthorpe Garden Centre.

Next year the school hope to gain the gold eco status through the use of growing and eating their own vegetables.
