Outdoor learning provision at a West Norfolk village school is set to be boosted by the proceeds of a weekend fundraiser.

The inaugural Meadowfest was held at the Holly Meadows School in Pott Row on Saturday, raising around £1,500.

Most of the funds will be used to help revive the school’s Forest School programme of outdoor activities, such as firemaking and den building, which are offered in addition to the standard curriculum.

Participating schools must have a qualified practitioner in order to take part in the programme, which the school has not been part of for the past two years.

But Emma Whitmore, chairman of the school’s PTA, said: “It will be started again from September and we’ve also got a little bit of money to revamp the library.”

She thanked everyone who supported the day and confirmed it would be held again next year.
