PUPILS from three Bromsgrove schools have been learning how to become river rangers in a series of sessions run by Worcestershire Wildlife Trust.

Catshill and Meadows First Schools as well as Catshill Middle School will be the three attending the event.

The half-day sessions include playing games all targeted to teaching the children how much of a precious resource rivers are to them.

The River Ranger activities are part of the conservation charity’s ‘Love Your River’ Bromsgrove project.

The project is aimed towards improving the water quality of freshwater throughout Bromsgrove.

Marissa Ryland, the engagement officer for the Trust, said: ‘Both the Battlefield and Spadesbourne Brook are significant features in Bromsgrove and both are important for wildlife and people.’’

Worcestershire Wildlife trust is also offering free assemblies to schools in Bromsgrove.
