PUPILS at Glory Farm School have been hard at work designing a new wildlife garden to help their studies and improve the environment.

The Eco Bicester group and the Wildlife Trust are providing funding for six Bicester primary schools to become part of the Wildlife Watch scheme, and to transform their grounds in the process.

Jane Gough, a parent member of Glory Farm’s Eco-school Action Team, said an expert from the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) had given advice on creating the perfect habitat for wildlife.

“They have also helped with the delicate operation of clearing an overgrown pond,” she added.

Plans include a smelly garden, a bug hotel, a screened bird watching area and a butterfly and drought garden.

A presentation on the Wildlife Watch scheme will be held in Bicester on Monday. Details are available on 01295 221644.
