Pallets help Broadwas CE Primary School 'out hop' local rabbits

  • Our old storage pallets are being put to good use keeping school’s plants safe
  • Clever member of the Gardening Club at Broadwas CE Primary School have transformed the wooden containers into the perfect raised planters

Our old, unused pallets have found a fantastic new use after being donated to a local school. The pallets have proved the ideal solution to help ‘rabbit-proof’ the treasured plants of the Gardening Club from Broadwas CE Primary School, and create an area for the whole school to enjoy.

The school’s green-fingered Gardening Club found that, although already raised slightly off the ground, its existing flower beds were suffering greatly from visitors of the hopping variety, which came during the night to eat the flowers and dig holes in the existing planters.   

We stepped in to donate a number of our old wooden pallet sides, which are usually recycled, to ensure that the flower beds could be elevated even further and making it more difficult for rabbits to destroy the hard work the pupils had put in.

Mark Allen, Head Teacher at Broadwas CE Primary School, said:

“We can’t thank Worcester enough for the donation of the pallets and are delighted to finally see work underway to help rejuvenate the planting area on our school field. Members of the Gardening Club have already emptied the raised beds of any plants past their best, and the donated pallets have been used to make much taller flower beds - which we hope will be much harder for the rabbits to access!”
