Beach Clean-up

Thank you and well done to all the volunteers who helped clean up Dunure Beach on Saturday 1st April 2017.  The Beach Clean-Up is an annual event organised by the Ayrshire Rotary Clubs.  This is the second year Fisherton Primary pupils have supported this good cause.  565 bags were collected along the Ayrshire Coastal Path, from Troon to Girvan.   Almost 3,000 plastic bottles were found along the way and the Rotary Clubs have been making us aware of the problems plastic bottles are causing in our waters.

Please remember to always dispose of litter properly. Thank you, Fisherton ECO Committee


Fisherton Primary ECO Committee & Ayrshire Rotary Clubs are looking for volunteers to help them clean up along Dunure Beach on Saturday 1st April 2017 between 9.30am-12noon.  Please meet at Harbour Cafe at 9.30am to have a safety talk from Ronnie Wilson from Ayr Rotary Club. Everyone Welcome!

Thank you

Finlay, Aidan, Amalie, Kyle, Meghan & Harvey


Community tree planting

This year the Woodland Trust offered over 4,000 free tree packs to schools, communities and youth groups across the UK.  Our ECO Committee applied for 210 trees and initially planned to plant them around the school perimeter to create a colourful hedge, with the intention of attracting even more birds and wildlife to our school grounds.  However, on this occasion, the ECO Committee reconsidered planting at the school and decided to plant the trees in the community for everyone to enjoy.

Last week the delivery arrived, a mixture of species Rowan; Dogwood, Hazel, Hawthorn, Cherry and Silver Birch.  Luckily each bundle of plants were colour coded to help identify the different species.  Bamboo supports and tree protectors were also provided for each tree sapling.  All of the P6 and P7 pupils, Andy and Helen Guthrie green-fingered residents of Dunure, Mrs McDowell, Elaine Gibson and Linda Izatt all rolled up their sleeves, got digging and successfully planted the tree saplings at the far end of Kennedy Park………. why not go along to Kennedy Park to check out the trees, you will find them along the full length of the fence, behind the farthest away football post or check out the photos:
