Mo­saic adds ex­tra piece to gar­den

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

CHIL­DREN from Ful­mer In­fants School took part in a fun ac­tiv­ity to help un­veil a new mo­saic in the sen­sory gar­den at Iver En­vi­ron­ment Cen­tre on Wed­nes­day last week, writes Mort Smith.

Anadarko Pe­tro­leum, an in­ter­na­tional oil and gas ex­plo­ration company, and a ma­jor sup­porter of Iver En­vi­ron­ment Cen­tre, con­sulted with Ful­mer In­fant School whose pupils sub­mit­ted draw­ings of mini-beasts and an­i­mals.

Anadarko com­mis­sioned a lo­cal artist to cre­ate the mo­saic, which was laid in the sen­sory gar­den at the front of the cen­tre.

Tracy Bad­ham, head of so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity for Anadarko, for­mally un­veiled it.

The chil­dren went on a trea­sure hunt in the sen­sory gar­den and en­tered them on a sheet of pa­per in the shape of the new mo­saic.

Cen­tre man­ager De­bra Frankiewicz said: “The sen­sory gar­den is a very im­por­tant and ex­cit­ing part of the cen­tre as it pro­vides a place for adults with dis­abil­i­ties and school pupils and fam­i­lies to ex­pe­ri­ence na­ture us­ing their senses and en­hance their knowl­edge of the en­vi­ron­ment.”
