On Wednesday 19th March 2014, 25 budding artists from St Anne’s Junior School, Brislington, took part in a workshop led by Discover Brislington Brook. The aim was to produce black and white line images of wildlife found along the brook corridor to include on a trail through Nightingale Valley and St Anne’s Wood.
The Brook Trail as it will be known is to be a series of 9 engraved plaques which can be used by families and teachers to do brass rubbings as an eduactional resource. Acompanying the plaques will be a teaching pack to help local teachers educate their children about the importance of their local green space and the animals and plants that depend on it.
The plaques will be installed this Spring along with the new entrances and path improvements to the 2 parks and are expected to be in place by the end of June 2014. Watch this space!
