Pupils from Mapperley CofE Primary School were given a chance to try out the new community barn and education garden at Woodside Nature Reserve in Shipley when it was opened.

The barn, supported by a £38,244 grant from the Veolia Environmental Trust through the Landfill 
Communities Fund, will act as a base for schools and other visitors to the reserve.
