Planting day at Lower Park Primary, Poynton, Stockport
Lower Park Primary School in Poynton was visited by representatives of Abode Property Development to help plant trees in the school grounds. Pupils, staff and representatives of Abode planted the saplings to create wildlife habitats and encourage biodiversity. The trees were all native British species, grown in the UK and included Crab Apple, Green Beech, Grey Willow, Rowan and Wild Cherry.
‘We really enjoyed planting the trees and hope the children will benefit from them well into the future. With the help of Tree Appeal we have managed to fulfil our 2022 pledge and enjoyed a great day out within the community’.
- Jason Rodgers, Director, Abode Property Development
The new saplings will provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity and preserving the natural environment. The children gained hands-on experience of how trees are planted and learned how important trees are to the world in which we live.
Abode teamed up with Tree Appeal to sponsor the planting of more than 200 trees at Lower Park Primary School in Poynton, demonstrating their commitment to environmental education and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world.
“We’ve been learning about growth as part of Science Week and also the children have been learning about sustainability as part of their geography project. Today it’s been fantastic to bring all that learning together and to come outside to plant trees in our grounds. Hopefully they are really making a legacy for themselves in the future. A massive thank you to Abode for sponsoring us today. It’s been a fantastic day, bringing all the community together.”
