A primary school in Keevil will be able to expand its forest school after receiving a range of new equipment.

Keevil Primary School collaborated with Wickes in Trowbridge, the home improvement and DIY store, to receive new tools including spades, watering cans, and a water butt.

The equipment was donated through the store's Community Project funding scheme for pupils and pre-school children to use during their forest school sessions.

Keevil's forest school, located behind the school, previously catered exclusively to its pupils.

However, the new equipment will allow the school to expand its offering to include free sessions for pre-school age children.

The sessions run once a month for children aged three to four and their parents or carers, beginning at 1.30pm on the first Wednesday of each month, and running for 90 minutes.

Wickes Trowbridge store manager, John Evans, said: "We were delighted to offer Keevil C of E Primary School this equipment to help kit out their forest school as part of our Community Project.

"It’s wonderful that the forest school offers all pupils the chance to learn in an outdoor environment, and we are thrilled that the equipment will help open up the facility to younger children too.”
