What a beautiful day we had today, just perfect for a nice jog and some friendly volunteering. Once again we had our two pickup locations, Sport Wales and Big Moose, as we all eagerly met ready to get back to School.

We were met by the Head Teacher,

Good Evening Mrs. Thomas

How strange to be in school during the Easter holidays, but no time to waste, lets get to work. This evening we had a lovely task to help make a start on clearing out flower beds that the pupils can turn into sensory gardens, a vegetable patch and a rainbow garden. I don't know about you but I can't wait to see the results.

We got stuck in, pulling Ivy, cutting Buddleja, digging out weeds and finding some long forgotten toys.

Hello McHooty the OWL

Several bags full, and it was a great start to the project. Much clearer and you could see the potential of the space now, hopefully we will return again to help / see progress. We thanked Mrs Thomas and her family before hitting the streets and heading back to Sport Wales for a stretch and rest.

Join us next week as we help out Riverside Medical Centre to create some wildflower areas.
