BBC Countryfile have been filming at Dothill Local Nature Reserve!
As I am sure you know, we work very closely with the Friends of Dothill Nature Reserve through our ECO club and Year 6 work led by Mrs Sargesson-Jones. Dothill pupils are the Junior Friends of Dothill Nature Reserve and we are very proud of this and the work that we do together. We are pioneers in this as we believe that our school is the first to link with a nature reserve in this way.
We heard two weeks ago that there was a possibility that we may be included in a feature on the BBC programme ‘Countryfile’ when they came to film at the Nature Reserve. It was confirmed last week but we had been told to keep it quiet so that there were not crowds of people hampering the filming.
The filming happened last Friday, 9th March, and we were thrilled that Matt Baker was here and met with Mrs Sargesson–Jones and some Year 6 Junior Friends. (I was only watching him on the One Show the previous evening!) Matt has signed a photo personally to our school telling us to keep up the good work. We will, Matt!
The show will be aired on Sunday 25th March.
Well done and thank you to Mrs Sargesson-Jones and the Friends of Dothill Nature Reserve for all their hard work in making this happen.
