From Sheila Tolmie of McLaughlin & Harvey –

Well done to all who entered the competition and explored the trail to learn more about the ecology of the River Carron.

The overall winner was Calum from Mill O’ Forest School who received his prizes, a £20 voucher for Bucket and Spade, his McLaughlin & Harvey hoodie and goodie bag.  He also received a back pack full of goodies from one of the Project Subcontractors, Centum.  Calum and his dad also had a tour of the project with Sheila the Community Liaison Officer.

Calums story about his trail experience was so good and demonstrates how much it was welcomed during home schooling and lockdown. 

“We walked the trail today, grateful for the fresh air and beautiful day after all the snow.   I was invited to walk the trail by my cousin Andrew who also goes to the same School.  We had hardly seen each other due to the lockdown and kept separated in bubbles at School.  We had a great walk and enjoyed the children’s artwork whilst learning about Otters and Bats.

Calums parents said thanks very much for meeting with Calum.  He was very excited to tell me afterwards about the tour.  The prizes are superb, he was delighted and the whiteboard is very handy for today’s fraction work
Jessica from Dunnottar Primary was also a winner and received a prize of a hoodie, gift voucher and goodie bag.  She also had a little tour of the project
Blair was the youngest entry and attends the Simpson Nursery.  He is mad about the diggers and overlooks the project each day from his window.
 In addition to his gift voucher and goodie bag, Potters Plant Hire kindly presented Blair with his own ride on digger and hat which you can see from the picture, he was delighted with
