Foxglove on TV

Monday, June 8th 2015

Richmond Methodist Primary School visited the reserve for the second of their three school visits. They were joined by a reporter, Olivia, from BBC Look North who was filming a piece about the reserve and the fantastic work that goes on here. She got some great shots of the students pond dipping as they learned about food chains and the creatures found in this habitat.

At the outdoor classroom the children were excited to discover the bugs and beasties that inhabit the dark damp world underneath log piles.

The story for Look North will be shown on the local evening news over the next few weeks and will tell the story of Foxglove, highlighting the hard work of our volunteers. It will also cover some of the habitats found here and their importance for biodiversity and rare species, encouraging more people to come and enjoy the reserve.

As well as interviewing the Reserve Managers and Tony, volunteers were also asked to give their perspective on life at Foxglove.

We will let you all know, as soon as we can, the date that this will be broadcast. We are very grateful to all of our volunteers who helped with the school visit and to Richmond Methodist Primary School who agreed to allow us to film educational activities today.
