The Eco buzz club has been thriving with wildlife and insects, teeming with vegetation and bursting with excitement. From July 2017 to August 2017, four workshops have been held with the eco-warriors of Concorde Close, where children have been actively participating in conservation activities. Activities range from painting bee houses and birdhouses, to planting pots of poppy seeds, to making Teepees. Children either worked alone, in pairs or groups and performed well to the best of their abilities.
