Molescroft Primary School has completed work on a conservation area following the receipt of a £5,000 grant from the Beverley Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme.

School head teacher Michael Loncaster told Beverley FM: ”We were absolutely thrilled to find out we had secured first place and £5,000 after the voting finished. The money has been used to refurbish our Conservation Area, which is much loved by our students and the grant enabled us to refresh the timber decking and walkways which were first constructed in 2005 and were beginning to show their age.” 

He continued: “Our youngest children use the area for “Forest School” activities, while every afternoon groups of children have their turn to appreciate the environment and the visiting wildlife, grow vegetables, maintain the various habitats and appreciate how we can influence our environment for the benefit of all life. The space also has the additional bonus of providing inspiration and a resource for curriculum work particularly in Science, Geography and the Arts.”

The Bags of Help scheme makes grants to local community projects from money raised from the sale of carrier bags in store. Applications for grants can be made to beverley@communityattesco.co.uk
