Young Wardens Day

Boarders from Aurora Eccles School had an energetic afternoon last Sunday at Kettishall Heath for Young Wardens Day. Their job was to cut branches and young trees to create a fence. The purpose of the fence was to direct the wild ponies (which were spotted in the distance) and the more human visitors away from an eroded footpath.

After getting a tool briefing and demonstration, the boarders set out using their bow saws and loppers like professionals to create the fence. After nearly two hours of hard work, everyone earned a well-deserved tea break! Samantha, the reserve Education Officer, said that she was impressed with all the boarders work ethic. Well done to all.
