Crest Nicholson, the award-winning housebuilder behind St James Mead in Badsey Village near Evesham, has donated £200 to help pupils at Badsey First School create a new school pond.

St James Mead, a selection of new three, four and five bedroom homes, is just a stone’s throw away from the school in Badsey and staff from the site couldn’t wait to see the pond for themselves.

Amanda Benjamin, Senior Sales Manager for Crest Nicholson, said: “We’ve been working in the area for some time now and feel very much part of the local community. We’re delighted to have been able to contribute to the new school pond, offering a safe haven for wildlife, and enhancing hands-on learning opportunities for local children.”

Julie Jones, the Head Teacher at Badsey First School, said: “The children have been involved from the start of the project and this has helped instil a sense of ownership as well as an interest and concern for the environment. The pupils are absolutely thrilled with their new pond – it really is a wonderful learning environment and we are very grateful to Crest Nicholson for this kind donation.”
