Wildlife Garden gets Double Boost!

We’re very pleased to announce that not only has the school received a grant of £500 for the Wildlife Garden from Keep Wales Tidy and Tesco, but also a further £200 from the Natural Buzz campaign run by Keep Wales Tidy and funded by the Welsh Government.

As the pictures show the cash has been put to good use.


St Teilo’s Catholic Primary School  has benefitted from free National Garden Gift vouchers thanks to the ‘Natural Buzz’ campaign run by environmental charity, Keep Wales Tidy, and funded by Welsh Government.

Children from St Teilo’s rolled up their sleeves and gave pollinators a helping hand when they found out they had been successful in applying for £200 which they used to buy seeds and plants .

The aim of the ‘Natural Buzz’ campaign is to raise awareness of the importance of pollinators, as well as to help communities create new habitats and food sources for pollinators by planting wild flower havens in unused spaces.

Keep Wales Tidy asked schools across Wales to apply for a ‘Natural Buzz’ grant of up to £250 to help them in their pollinator improvement projects.

Mrs Nicholls , Headteacher from St Teilo’s said,

“We were thrilled when we found out that we’d been successful in applying in for Garden Centre vouchers. Natural Buzz has enabled us to make a huge improvement to the pollen and nectar that’s on offer in our school grounds and hopefully this will benefit our local environment and wildlife, as well as the local community.”

Lesley Jones, Chief Executive of Keep Wales Tidy, said:

“I am delighted that so many schools across Wales got involved to help our pollinators and their natural environment. They have planted new flowering plants to attract our bees and butterflies as well as giving existing habitats a helping hand. Keep Wales Tidy would like to thank the Welsh Government for all their support, ensuring that the ‘Natural Buzz’ has been a great success for schools across Wales!”

St Teilo’s  has benefitted from a cash injection thanks to an environmental grant scheme from Keep Wales Tidy and Tesco.

Pupils and staff  from St Teilo’s were thrilled to hear they’d been successful in applying for an All Wales Grant of £500 which they then used to create a wildlife garden .

Community groups, schools and charitable organisations across Wales were asked to apply to the All Wales Grant Scheme from November 2014, with grants of £100 – £500 available to help them with their very own green initiatives.

Run by environmental charity, Keep Wales Tidy and funded by Tesco’s single use carrier bag charge, the aim of the All Wales Grant Scheme is to assist communities across Wales in real environmental actions, both financially and practically, to help improve their local environment.

Mrs Nicholls, Headteacher  from St Teilo’s said,

‘We are delighted with our new Wildlife Garden. Over the past few months the area has been transformed into a vibrant, colourful outdoor learning area . We are very grateful to all the parents and many Friends of the school who have helped us. The children have been actively involved and really enjoy working in and  looking after their new outdoor area.’

Lesley Jones, Chief Executive of Keep Wales Tidy, said:

“I am delighted that so many groups and environmental projects across Wales have benefitted from a financial boost thanks to the All Wales Grants Scheme. It’s vital that we all do our bit to care for our local environment and through the scheme, local people across Wales have been able to get the support, resources and expert advice they need to carry out their environmental improvement projects.  

Keep Wales Tidy would like to thank Tesco customers for their support with the single use carrier bag donation, resulting in a successful All Wales Grant Scheme. ”

For more information on the All Wales Grant Scheme, please e-mail grants@keepwalestidy.org or visit the website www.keepwalestidy.org.

The grant scheme was the first project to be launched thanks to a partnership between Keep Wales Tidy and Tesco, after 27,000 Tesco customers took part in a vote to choose Keep Wales Tidy as the charity to benefit from Tesco’s carrier bag charge in Wales from 1st October 2014.
