Larkfleet Homes and Deepings Building and Plumbing Supplies (both member companies of Larkfleet Group) are to provide Bourne Abbey Church of England Primary Academy with a selection of different wildlife boxes, so pupils can expand their learning about local wild animals.

The wildlife boxes – which will include a variety of different sized bird boxes – are being provided to the school free of charge by the local companies to encourage wildlife habitats within the school grounds for both educational and conservation purposes.
The wildlife boxes, like the 
one pictured right, will provide a unique opportunity for pupils to study the behaviour of local wildlife throughout the different seasons.

Importantly, the wildlife boxes will also offer a critical oasis for bird and wildlife conservation and will 
help preserve wildlife both within the school grounds and in the wider local environment.

Builders merchant Deepings Building and Plumbing Supplies regularly sells wildlife boxes to its customers, including many builders, to help them meet environmental standards.
