Press Release

25th March 2015

Tree-mendous fun at the Tree Trail!

Lucky youngsters from Locks Heath Junior School got in touch with nature at Warsash Common on Wednesday 18th March.

The pupils were able to take part in a range of engaging activities including a Tree Trail talk from one of the Council's Countryside Officers; pond dipping; looking at animal foot prints and sketching.

"All the children thoroughly enjoyed their day and loved learning about their local environment. We couldn't have wished for better weather either!" enthused teacher, Miss Telford.

New to the site, the Tree Trail is an educational path that features twelve native species (including a large apple tree with hanging poems) with individual information sheets containing interesting ecological and botanical facts.

Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Cllr Connie Hockley said: "This has been a great opportunity for the children, and I am glad that an enjoyable day was had by everyone involved."

To experience the Tree Trail, please visit www.fareham.gov.uk/thetreetrail for further information.

Notes to Editor

The tree trail and poetry path form a self-guided circular walk around the Warsash Common Local Nature Reserve which is approximately 1.5km in length. The terrain varies significantly but on the whole the paths are passible throughout the year.

The walk incorporates a wide variety of different habitats which includes open grasslands, water bodies as well as wet and dry woodlands.
