NURSERY school children at Sunbeams Pre-School have be busy becoming one with nature of late.

An area that was once overgrown at North Mundham Village Hall has now been transformed into an amazing wildlife garden for the children to enjoy.

The four-month project has seen a number of local groups and helpers pull together.

In May this year, Sunbeams had a dads’ day which saw the dads clear the over grown area – rewarded with a bacon butty.

Knight Fencing donated the fence and this was erected by Kerrin Cruttenden of KJC tree surgery.

Greenacres nursery in Sidlesham supplied the plants, and from there John Cole produced the most amazing wildlife garden for the children to use.

A spokeswoman from the school: “Sunbeams Preschool would like to thank all who were involved in making the Wildlife garden such a wonderful place, but a special thank you to John Cole, who has made a wonderful magical place for the children to enjoy.”
