Looking back over 2012 - Forest School

Well 2012 is quickly coming to a close, and I can’t quite believe where it’s gone?! It has been a fantastic year for Free Rangers, gaining both a Outstanding accreditation for Ofsted across the board as well as coming first place in the Royal Forestry Society’s ‘Schools Award’ for increasing young people’s understanding and appreciation of the environmental, social and economic potential of trees, woodlands and forests. The site has developed also, and our Nursery grounds and outdoor spaces continue to thrive. This year has seen a conservation pond installed, our timber trail in the paddock, several hundred hedgerow and standalone trees planted not to mention our newly planted Orchard. It’s been a busy year and 2013 will no doubt be just as busy. There are plenty of plans in the pipework to develop our grounds so watch this space!

All that is left to say is a huge thank you from all the team at Free Rangers for all your continued support and help to make the nursery what it is today.

We hope you have a very Merry Christmas, and a happy New Year.

See you all in 2013!

R. Fox.
