Robert Price helps primary school make bird boxes

The Builders Merchants donated 20 lengths of timber to Llantilio Pertholey School, which helped them make 60 bird boxes.

The students had been learning about their “Saving the World” topic, which sparked an interest in increasing the wildlife around the school grounds with bird boxes.

The school was unable to fund the project so they reached out to their local Timber Mechants, Robert Price, to see if they could help.

Robert Price responded immediately and explained how they would love to help.

Vice Chair of the PTFA, Elaine, said: “The children took great care in researching the different styles of boxes for different birds and planned a wide variety of shapes to include as many species as possible.

“Without Robert Price’s donation, this activity could simply not have taken place.”

The bird boxes will help to encourage spring wildlife nesting in the school grounds, whilst woodworking is also a rewarding skill that helps to teach and encourage creativity, problem solving and craftsmanship.

Molly Pike, Marketing Director at Robert Price, said: “The team at Robert Price Abergavenny were mightily impressed by the new bird boxes the Llantilo Pertholey students made. It is so rewarding to see the finished products after all their hard work.”
