Usually during the summer term, Bamford Pre-school undertakes a litter pick as a collective group as part of their focus on outdoor learning. However, given covid-19 restrictions, this year there was a twist – our children and families rose to the challenge of individual litter picks with gusto!
Over the month of June, our pre-schoolers did a fantastic job tidying up Bamford and surrounding areas kitted out with litter pickers courtesy of Bamford Parish Council. Thanks to the generosity of you – our wonderful families, friends, neighbours and pre-school supporters – our challenge raised over a whopping £550 for pre-school. This sponsorship will make a massive difference to pre-school, especially as many of our scheduled fundraising events had to be cancelled given the current climate.
Tom Lewis, Peak Park Ranger, usually joins Bamford Pre-school’s litter picks and works with staff to encourage our pre-schoolers to look after the local environment and be ‘good citizens’ said: “I’ve really missed joining Bamford Pre-school’s litter pick this summer, but am impressed and delighted that they are still taking on the challenge despite the strange times we are in. Enthusing the next generation with a love of the great outdoors and community spirit is so important and we are in the perfect setting, within Britain’s first National Park. Well done to everyone at Bamford Pre-school for their commitment to this.”
Caroline Hunter, Bamford Pre-school Leader commented “Our children take a real pride in looking after their local environment. We are all very proud of their efforts and are grateful to everyone’s support through sponsorship. Thank you”
The litter pick is part of Bamford Pre-school’s ethos as an active member of the local community.
Bamford Pre-school is open Monday – Friday during term time, creating a fun learning environment, helping each child develop their social skills, creativity and confidence in preparation for school.
