CHILDREN from Oxmoor have been learning new skills and having fun at a 'Forest School' held at Grafham Water Nature Reserve.

During the first two weeks of the summer holidays, 18 children from Oxmoor have learnt woodland survival skills, making a forest shelter, as well as learning about fire safety.

The main aim of the scheme is to help children who have in the past struggled at school make a successful move to secondary school.

INFORMATION: The Grafham Water Nature Reserve is managed by The Wildlife Trust, which has set up the Forest School. The project has been jointly funded by the trust and the Cambridgeshire Children's Fund with grant aid from the Forestry Commission.
