School farm takes off - thanks to airport
PUPILS at a primary school are enjoying having a farm on site after receiving funding from Bristol Airport.
Court de Wyck School in Claverham has taken delivery of some chicks after becoming one of the five recipients of the airport’s local community fund.
A school spokesman said the chicks were just the start of the project, with other farmyard animals set to be added soon.
The �100,000 community fund is designed to give something back to residents who are likely to be affected by the airport’s expansion plans.
Successful applicants for funding can receive grants between �500-12,000.
