A disused and forgotten pond area at a primary school has been transformed into an inspirational outdoor learning area with the support of the Rotary Club of the Deepings.

Over a number of years the pond at the back of the playing field at Linchfield Community Primary School in Deeping St James had been out of use and fenced off for safety reasons. But the school’s outdoor learning co-ordinator, Year 6 teacher Scott Reeve, was not prepared to see such a potentially valuable learning facility go to waste and he approached the club for help.

The club gave £200 and The Friends of Linchfield School also provided generous funding and, with the efforts of pupils and local firm Deep In Garden, the pond has been restored and rejuvenated.
