Senior Student Council have raised funds to buy a new picnic bench for Spring Wood, near Whalley. The woodland is popular with local people and Oakhill use the Wood for fieldwork, the school walk and running club.

They bought the bench in time for the spring when all the bluebells appear and 4 members of Council went up to help Paul Shoreman, who co-ordinates the woodland for the County Council, fix the bench in place.

Students had to be quite handy using the tools but were pleased to see the finished bench in situ to be enjoyed by visitors in the future.

Well done Student Council and thanks to Paul for his help.
