CHILDREN from Mablins Lane Primary School in Leighton enjoyed a visit to the local Wildlife Trust farm, after raising £500 for the nature charity with a ‘brew and bake’ day.

Around 80 youngsters headed off to Cheshire Wildlife Trust’s Bickley Hall Farm near Malpas, and were some of the first visitors to a new £120,000 learning centre which is now housed inside the farm’s 100 year old cow barns.

Dawn Addison from Mablins Lane Primary school said: “The children were really keen to raise money to support the project at the Wildlife Trust farm because they had heard from previous groups what a fantastic time they would have when they visited.

“They felt very proud that they had played a part in the new centre and yet again we had a superb visit giving the children the opportunity to compare a rural habitat and the creatures within it to the urban area around our school in Crewe.”

Nick Rowles, from Cheshire Wildlife Trust added: “We’ve been welcoming children from Mablins Lane for a few years now and it’s been great to have them back as some of the first people to use the new education centre, which they have generously been fundraising for.”
