Sum­mer in full swing at out­door fun events

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

YOUNG and old alike across Peter­bor­ough have been en­joy­ing the great out­doors as the sum­mer tem­per­a­tures soared.

The sun shone brightly for Bishop Creighton Pri­mary School’s Make A Dif­fer­ence Day, an ini­tia­tive to get chil­dren in­ter­act­ing with the en­vi­ron­ment spear­headed by teach­ing as­sis­tants Zanib Bibi and Sue Birt.

Head­teacher Karen Roofe said: “We fo­cused on the en­vi­ron­ment be­cause a lot of the pupils don’t have a gar­den at home.

“Ev­ery pupil has planted a sun­flower in the grounds and it is a great thing to bring them to­gether.”

Pupils from Longth­orpe Pri­mary School also learned about the en­vi­ron­ment at the Eco-Schools Day at the East of Eng­land Show­ground.

Teacher Lisa Waller said: “All the pupils had a thor­oughly good time learn­ing about the world around us and the im­por­tance of be­ing en­vi­ron­men­tally aware.”

Vol­un­teers from RSA have spent the week im­prov­ing the gar­dens at Sue Ry­der Care’s Thorpe Hall hospice, in Peter­bor­ough. They have en­joyed glo­ri­ous weather while build­ing wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble routes to the gar­den this week. Sadly the weather was not so nice for the Al­der­man Ja­cobs’ sum­mer fete but a down­pour could not dampen the good spir­its at the an­nual event.

As­sis­tant head­teacher Ni­cola Parker said: “We had a great SCUBA div­ing event and it doesn’t re­ally mat­ter if it rains for that! Also the coun­try danc­ing club didn’t mind the rain and put on a great per­for­mance.”
