Hemblington Pre-School, in Blofield Heath, is looking to apply for financial grants to help cover the cost of improved fencing at its woodland site.

The early-years site, which is also a registered charity, has seen its “precious woodland environment” damaged by senseless acts of destruction. 

“Our fencing has been broken down and our posts have been pushed over,” said Fiona Trimble, manager of the pre-school. 

“Each incident adds to the hundreds we are having to shell out on repairs. 

“Our main source of income is from the government and the school is run by volunteers, so all the money we get goes straight back into providing the best outcome for children.

“Some of that is currently being diverted away for repairs.

“We can’t keep spending all this money just because someone has chosen to break our fencing.”

As a result, the school is requesting information from Blofield Parish Council on how it can apply for a grant to improve its facilities.

This includes replacing the existing wooden fencing with chain-like material.

In the meantime, local police have advised the school to install CCTV, put signs up and implement a padlock on the gate.

“We have spoken with the council about the procedure for applying,” said Fiona. 

“They have told us they have limited resources but may be able to signpost us to someone who can help.

“Our aim is to secure the funding for a stronger damage-resistant fence that can protect our precious woodland environment.

Police data shows that Blofield Heath is a low-crime area, with just 14 incidents reported to the police during the first six months of the year – up slightly from 12 in the same period last year.

In June, the most recent month available, just two reports are listed, one for a public order offence and the other for anti-social behaviour.
