Welcome to Downsbrook Primary School

 

The Friends of Downsbrook’s crowdfunding campaign received a ringing endorsement this week with a funding boost of £6,000 from West Sussex County Council as well as a visit from local Councillor, Bryan Turner.

The Friends of Downsbrook want to develop a Forest School and community cabin in an established wild area within the school grounds. The space will be used as a hub for disseminating environmental ideas, developing collaborative community environmental projects and act as a free local meeting place in a natural setting. The cabin will also be a base for the school's Forest School activities; ensuring a dry space for protective clothing, equipment and tools and be a ‘bolt-hole’ in severe weather.

The scheme is already attracting lots of support from parent volunteers and local businesses and has now won the recognition of prominent local community figures. Commenting on his visit, Cllr Turner said,

“It was great to visit Downsbrook, and to meet the new Head and her staff. I was really pleased to see the plans for the Forest School, and for Broadwater Brook. It is so important that our young people get the chance to experience the outdoors and to learn about environmental issues. West Sussex County Council have pledged to support the project, and I would encourage anyone who shares Downsbrook’s ambition to become involved.”

The pledge of funding from West Sussex County Council takes the total amount pledged so far to a whopping £9,600. Although this is tremendously good news, we still have £2,400 to raise in order to secure the full amount of £12,076 that is needed to access all of the pledges made.

To fill this pledging gap The Friends of Downsbrook are asking all parents, carers, families and local organisations to support them by pledging whatever they can to this exciting project.

For more information on the project and to pledge a donation please visit our SpaceHive project.
