FIVE students rolled up their sleeves to help renovate a pond and maintain a hedgerow.

The students from Redwood Park School, in Cosham, were invited to spend three days of their work experience fortnight at Tuppenny Barn, off Main Road, Southbourne.

On the organic smallholding, the team were tasked with working on the pond renovation project.

The pond revamp is being supported by Chichester District Council’s wildlife officer, Sarah Hughes.

Sarah said: ‘They were inspiring to work with, they were a lovely team, hard-working and good fun to be with.’

Education officer Ed Bond, who arranged the work experience, added: ‘The work they did has been invaluable in getting the site ready.’
