Travis St Lawrence CE School have an answer to the heavy rain - soak it up!
They have installed "Soak it Up" installations to catch rain water, helping to reduce the impact of surface water.
And local MP Caroline Flint was on hand with pupils to inspect the work, including 240 assorted trees planted in the school grounds and to meet a few helpers on hand to get the job done - from Yorkshire Water and the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
Caroline Flint and Hatfield councillor Derek Smith joined pupils at Coppice School to see how they have given new homes to unwanted animals at the school’s growing farm.
Caroline and Derek were given a tour of the school by Deputy Head, Natalie Swearman. But the highlight of the day was when pupils showed their guests the farm; with a goat, two pigs, chickens and a family of guinea pigs.
