Groundforce Days… making a difference
Saturday 3rd November, what a day! It all started with delivery of our skip on 2nd November. Some of you have probably seen the extremely large skip in the drop off lane. This skip was kindly donated to us by Fowles http://www.fowlesskiphire.com/ We can honestly say, from start to finish, what a lovely company to deal with. We asked for a large skip, they gave us just that. We are honestly blown away by their generosity, it has made such a difference to our school being able to shift so much stuff in one go! We can highly recommend Fowles should you need a skip in the future. http://www.fowlesskiphire.com/
We managed to get so much done on the day. It was lovely to see so many volunteers who came to help make the school grounds look tip-top, not only for the children, but our whole school community. Without you, this day would not be possible.
There was so much to be getting on with, weeding the beds, replacing woodchip bark on them, removing rooted sycamore trees, repairing our shed roof, and an extreme amount of leaf clearance.
After it had been completed the difference was astounding. Many hands definitely made light work.
A special thank you also goes to our Head Master, the one and only, Mr Lewin for his bacon butties. We are sure this helps round up more volunteers. Another special thank you goes out to one of the dads at school, Dan Felton, who repaired our shed roof. We will now be able to store our second hand uniform in a nice dry shed. Thanks Dan!
Thank you to each and every volunteer who arrived on the day, and all of the children who also got stuck in helping to fill up the skip. This day simply would not be possible without each and every one of you.
We hope to see our lovely volunteers again in Spring, ready for another Ground Force Day.
