Pupils from a county high school have been helping Northumberland Wildlife Trust at one of its busiest nature reserves.

The youngsters from Ashington Community High School have been helping to put right the storm damage which has been caused over the winter to the trust’s Hauxley reserve near Druridge Bay.

Over the course of a day last week the students filled in the potholes on the reserve caused by the excessive winter rain and helped to relay the access track to the temporary visitor centre.

A spokesman for Northumberland Wildlife Trust said: “The transferable life skills gained, such as the use of tools and materials, will stand them in good stead when they leave school.”
