NORTH Somerset school children met a Government minister on Monday to share their experiences of a year-long environmental project.

The children from Tickenham Primary School were at Goblin Coombe Environment Centre where they met the Right Honourable Margaret Hodge, culture and tourism minister.

During the last year, as part of the Find Your Talent project, North Somerset Council has been working with schools in the Nailsea area to enable children to visit the centre in Cleeve.

Under the guidance of naturalist and broadcaster, Chris Sperring, the children have studied the impact of climate change on the 130-acre woodland.

The Climate Change Barometer Project enables children to understand the woodland ecosystem throughout the year by highlighting changes and the effect of those changes.

Evidence was recorded on paper and also using cameras.

Other schools involved in the Find Your Talent project, which is aimed at giving children the chance to try different cultural and creative activities, were Kingshill, Golden Valley, Grove Junior and Ravenswood Special School in Nailsea, plus Wraxall Primary School.
