Topsoil donation brings Cranbrook pupils closer to nature

Date: Thursday 06 August 2020


Our Exeter team has helped Cranbrook youngsters get more in touch with nature by delivering a load of topsoil to St Martin’s C of E Primary School.

Prior to the lockdown restrictions, the site team at Cranbrook donated earth normally used for gardens and open spaces to help refill raised beds in St Martin’s forest school area, as well as some large planters. Outdoor lessons at St Martin’s give pupils the chance to develop their skills through practical, hands-on experiences in a natural environment.

Angela Whitten, Forest School Leader at St Martin’s, said: “Outdoor education is growing in popularity across the country and is a really important part of our pupils’ development, so it’s great to see a large company such as Taylor Wimpey pledge time and resources to our forest school. I was thrilled when the team offered to donate some topsoil and the children have really been enjoying their lessons in nature.”
