Students at a Chasetown school have been getting on their bikes to find out more about Chasewater Country Park.

Lichfield District Council’s biodiversity officer Chris Walsh took the Chasetown Community School pupils and teachers on a ride through the Country Park.

The pupils, aged nine and ten, not only had fun cycling through the country park, they also learnt lots of interesting facts about the Site of Special Scientific Interest from the wildlife expert.

Chris said:

“It was great to take the children on a bike ride, so they could see the country park from a different perspective. I talked to them throughout the day about the history of Chasewater’s fragile heathland habitat and the reservoir. They got lots of energy out and all said they had a brilliant time riding their bikes.”
