This evening we were back at the Oasis Foundry School to continue the great work we have been doing. We had two groups today - a group of walkers who set off early and a group of runners who set off later, so we all met at the school around the same time.
We met Meghan there who briefed us on the tasks we needed to do and split us into two groups again. One group went to the school to move some sticks and branches to the wildlife area whilst the other group picked litter in the park opposite the school, making it nice and tidy for the kids to use.
Once we were finished we all walked across the grassy field and got our feet wet (hence the pun) to have a look at the wildlife area and how its progressed. The great work we've been doing alongside Oasis Foundry School was evident and the area was thriving. The pond and bee bank is looking great and the wildlife area is being used to grow a variety of vegetables, including pumpkins which look like they'll be nice and ready for Halloween.
Once we were finished, we had a look at the community pantry which we will be painting on our next visit, before we ran and walked back to 1000 Trades.
Thanks everyone for coming and for your hard work - well done!
