I spy….

Children at a local primary school will be keeping a closer eye on nature than ever before thanks to a new partnership.

Montgomery Energy Group has presented Montgomery CinW Primary School’s Eco-Committee with a wildlife camera so the children can find out more about the wildlife that also visits their school.

The money was raised largely from items sold at the town yard sale and giveaway in June this year.

Jenny Brignell, from Montgomery Energy Group, said: “Powys County Council lent us a wildlife camera this year as part of their Watching Nature Recover scheme and we have enjoyed it so much we felt it would be wonderful for the children at school to be able to use one.”

MEG member Pat Turner added: “We installed a trail cam in our garden during lockdown and have greatly enjoyed watching the birds, hedgehogs and mice that share our garden with us. I am sure that the children will learn a lot about their environment because of the school camera.”

Eco-Committee member Freija Corfield, age 10, said: “The camera means we can see wildlife that we wouldn’t normally be able to see. I’m excited to find out the animals that use our school grounds when we are not there!”

Eco-Committee members also participated in the Monty Hour during the Great Big Green Week and talked about how they are taking responsibility for looking after their local environment and school and grounds.
