Harrow’s Forest School is working hard to raise the £2,000 needed to create a pond.

The pioneering project, which gives local children outdoor learning experiences, has already secured half the necessary funding and it is hoped the pond will be available by the autumn term.

The school is based at All Saints Church in Harrow Weald, and aims to help children learn about the natural world.

So far more than 100 children have benefitted from the facilities and it is hoped that the pond will enable children to learn about biodiversity.

Reverend James Mercer, Vicar of All Saints, said: “We at All Saints’ are delighted to be part of this innovative project. 

“Working in partnership to enable young people and adults to develop a self esteem and a sense of belonging is what the job is all about.”

Weald School teacher, Louise Kemp, added: “This is a fantastic initiative. Our children have the opportunity to really work together as they explore the wood and make things from the natural materials they find there. It is a challenging but safe place for them to be.”
