GOLDTHORPE kids are hoping to promote the wonder of woodlands as they strengthen their schools eco-credentials.

Goldthorpe Primary’s eco-school councillors have signed up to Woodland Trust Tree Charter to promote the use and conservation of trees and woodland.

In November, the 800th anniversary of the influential 1217 Charter of the Forest, the Woodland Trust will launch the Charter for Trees, Woods and People.

They hope people and groups across the country will sign up to show their love of trees.

The school is also backing a project to boost bees and butterflies by taking part in a national survey of outdoor spaces.

The Polli:Nation survey project also encourages people to improve their environment to make them friendlier to pollinating insects, which form a vital part of the eco-system.

Data collected through the Polli:Nation survey will be used to aid research on the health and status of pollinating insects across the UK.
