The `Tree Warden Group Merton` wrote to us to express how much they needed our support to water 8 newly planted trees in Raynes Park. By doing this, our Eco Warriors “have helped reduce the impact of climate change, reduce flooding and improve air quality as well as make our streets more beautiful.” Even members of the public commented on the wonderful work that our children and our school are doing to support the environment.
