Youngsters from Hunslet Moor Primary School recently visited Skelton Grange Environment Centre, during a family event, to get hands-on with some environmental art.
The children made all sorts of visually astonishing pieces with the natural objects they found in the woodland areas at Skelton Grange.
Said BTCV Project Administrator Ralph Walker:
“It’s always amazing to see what people can come up with, using all the amazing, colourful materials found naturally and when left to their own imaginations!”
The families also developed their team building skills when they had a go at building bivouac shelters with the staff at the centre. Again they utilised natural materials to create shelters good enough to spend a night in.
The day was followed up by the production of a set of postcards available from the school, which highlight the work of Skelton Grange Environment Centre and Hunslet Moor Primary School. This will hopefully help the centre raise awareness and vital funds.
Skelton Grange Environment Centre aims to engage people of all ages and inspire them to make a positive difference to their community and local environment. Their environmentally friendly centre set in 10 acres of land is managed for wildlife and as an outdoor classroom in south Leeds, where people can learn, play, explore and discover.
Skelton Grange Environment Centre have recently subscribed to the localgiving.com website where the public can make a donation, to help a cause which is local and relevant to them.
