Thank you to everyone who donated to the schools hedgehog food bank. everything has been delivered to the Preston Hedgehog Rescue who are delighted to receive the much needed supplies. It didn't take long for the youngsters to start tucking in.
We are delighted that Balderstone School has been approved as a hedgehog release site. We had a visit today from Dave who is a volunteer with Hedgehog Rescue Blackpool. He came and spoke to the children about all things hedgehog and even brought a special visitor for the children to meet. Dave takes in injured, sick and orphaned hedgehogs and looks after them until they are fit and ready to be re-released. Our two new residents, Robbie and Roscoe, have now taken up occupancy of their new homes and we will be keeping a very close eye on them over the next few weeks.

Back in February 2018 we applied to the National Lottery for a grant to develop a wildlife area on our school field with a safe access to a brook. We were successful in our bid and work started with the help of the Lancashire Wildlife Trust. All the children were involved in planning the project including designing the logo. We now have a wonderful seating area set in woodland and access to the brook to allow the children to safely investigate their environment. The aim is to encourage the children and adults within our community to be enthusiatic in spending time outdoors and nuturing a curiosity about the world around them.
