Three pupils from Uppingham Community College made a special visit to the brand new Animal Studies Unit at New College Stamford last week with an interesting gift of logs.

The pupils have been busy coppicing trees in the nearby woods as part of the work for their Duke of Edinburgh Award, alongside the John Muir Award.

New College Stamford currently has more than 70 species of animals on site including monkeys, meerkats, snakes and parrots that all require natural housing for their homely habitats.

As a reward for their hard work the pupils, along with teacher Debbie Thomas, were invited to meet some of the animals that are now enjoying the newly donated logs.

The favourites were of course the meerkats who were eager to meet the trio.
