School children plant tree in Godmanchester

During the last 12 months, Accent and Seagate Homes have been building 105 new affordable homes in Godmanchester., Cambridgeshire.

As part of this project Seagate Homes were delighted to donate £250 to local primary school, Godmanchester Bridge Academy, to support the development of their outdoor learning area. The money will go towards restoring the school’s pond and developing raised beds for growing food.

This week three Year 6 pupils and their teacher visited our Cardinal Park scheme to celebrate the donation with a tree planting ceremony. Also present were representatives from Accent Housing, Seagate Homes and Thornton Firkin.

Emma Ripley, Outdoor Learning Lead at Godmanchester Bridge Academy said “We were very excited to be offered the opportunity to plant a tree on the site. This green space will give Godmanchester Bridge Academy students the opportunity to observe and study wildlife in their local area. We will be using the very kind donation from Seagate Homes to support the school’s outdoor learning. We intend to repair our school pond and build an allotment. We are looking forward to building the relationship between GBA, Accent Housing, Seagate Homes and the community moving forward.”

Adam Murfet, Managing Director of Seagate Homes said “It has been a privilege to meet the teacher and three year 6 students from Godmanchester Bridge Academy who helped plant the oak tree. We are delighted to donate to the school and really hope that our contribution helps with the creation of an allotment area which will provide the children with lots of learning opportunities. The development of 59 properties at Cardinal Park has been a huge success with Accent Group and giving back to the community is a big part of our company ethos at Seagate Homes.”
