Community Windpower boosts East Linton Primary's eco-friendly credentials

East Linton Primary

East Linton Primary School are currently aiming towards achieving a Green Flag award as part of their overarching School Improvement plan to become more eco-friendly. With a Sustainability group who meet regularly, the school approached BeGreen Community Coordinator Anouska Woods for grant funding that would purchase a protective greenhouse and cold frames for the outdoor plants, workwear and tools for the pupils, and seeds for them to plant in their new outdoor space.

Community Windpower and BeGreen were delighted to facilitate this funding for the school. Protecting the environment and boosting sustainability and eco-friendliness are central to our ethos, as well as providing green spaces for young people to explore nature and gardening. It is hoped that the improved gardening space will boost pupils’ mental health, wellbeing, and provide a fun environment for them to make friends and learn a new skill.

Gill Gardner, Headteacher at East Linton Primary, said: “We are very grateful to BeGreen Dunbar for their generous funding for East Linton primary. This will allow us to enhance and develop our learning experiences about sustainability across different aspects of the curriculum for all of our learners.”
