Dersingham First and Nursery School took on Millennium Challenge in 2000
Dersingham First and Nursery School was one of the first schools in West Norfolk to take up the Environment Agency’s year-long Millennium Challenge in February 2000.
The aim for residents, firms and schools was to make small changes in lifestyle to help make a big change to the environment, with a series of projects being organised for each month.
The Dersingham school received a grant for a pond redevelopment plan in its school grounds, as well as putting up bird nesting boxes.
