FitFlop planting day at Branfil PrimaryPlanting day at Branfil Primary School, Upminster

April 2016

Footwear company FitFlop visited Branfil Primary School in Upminster to help plant trees in the school grounds. Pupils, staff and representatives of FitFlop helped to plant native broad leaf trees to create wildlife habitats and encourage biodiversity. 130 saplings, including Silver Birch, Field Maple, Goat Willow, Green Beech, Dog Rose, Dogwood, Hornbeam, Rowan, Oak, Hazel and Hawthorn, all grown in England from collected seed, were planted around the edge of the new school garden area.

Branfil Primary School is a school for boys and girls aged between 4 and 11 situated in a quiet, leafy, semi-rural position on the outskirts of Upminster in the London Borough of Havering. The school aims are, “At Branfil Primary School we are confident and successful learners who will develop into responsible citizens of the future.”

The children gained hands-on experience of how trees are planted and learnt how important trees are to the world in which we live. The new saplings will provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity and preserving the natural environment.

FitFlop has teamed up with Carbon Footprint as part of their carbon management programme and with Tree Appeal, planting native broadleaf trees in schools, demonstrating their continued commitment to environmental education and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world.
