The staff, governors and headteacher Angela Stanton took a tour of the school and showed the MP around some of the school’s hotspots. Pictured are the staff, children and MP Mills at Alfreton Nursery’s Forest School site where there is a recently developed pond which has, in new residence, many creatures including tadpoles and two newts.

The pond is a new feature in the rapidly developing forest school on site at Alfreton.

Laura Dolby, Forest School coordinator said: “We’re very keen to increase the biodiversity of the area and the children are really fascinated to see it develop.”
