This week, Bedmax, showed support of their local community by donating wooden seats for the Forest School area. Earlier this week, Bedmax was proud to visit Belford Primary School to donate hand-crafted wooden seats made from repurposed logs. Based in Belford, Bedmax produce dust-free equine bedding, as well as environmentally sustainable Hotmax heat logs.
As well as creating an environmentally aware product, they also pride themselves on their work to support the local community. Andrew Gregory, a representative of Bedmax and a former pupil of the school was delighted to deliver the new seats which have been designed to fit in with the natural environment of the school’s outdoor classroom.
Belford Primary School takes pride in allowing children to express themselves and get involved. Their ethos is simple, that childhood is special and children learn most when they are happy. Being a rural, forest school, children are encouraged to learn about the local area and communities, as well as nature and the outdoors.
Headteacher of the school, Mrs Lorna Rainey, said: “Our children thrive in the fresh air, enjoying outdoor play as well as outdoor teaching, and so they’ve been thrilled to receive these unusual seats. Here at Belford Primary School, we teach our students about how they can help the environment and these seats really highlight this. Having Bedmax reach out to us was a wonderful gesture and the staff and children alike are extremely grateful.”
