A step (or 4) in the right direction
6 runners ran to help the St Martin's Garden Primary School in Bath.

We were back again at St Martins Garden school to continue transforming a previously neglected area of land into a garden school. Andy, the organiser, had high expectations for the group - clearing a patch of scrubby land for a new wooden teepee and installing some steps on a slope leading to the garden school area.
The steps team soon got into a rhythm - sawing a large sleeper in two with a slightly inadequate bow saw, digging a channel in the earth with a slightly scary mattock, hammering rebar rods in place with Andy's brand new sledge hammer and finally backfilling with soil to make the step even. Hard work but the end result was very satisfying with a neat set of 4 steps leading down to the garden school area.
Meanwhile the clearing team had been attacking the tall shrubs with loppers, and digging up roots, clearing the plot so that a barrier membrane can be laid down in anticipation of a new wooden teepee for the kids to use. Again, a big difference in a short space of time.
