It was another unseasonably warm Saturday morning which saw 5 GGers make their way to Hampton Hill Junior School to continue the series of tasks we have carried out for them over the past months.

After a couple of recent community missions focusing on the school gates we were back on benches. Previously we had painted the picnic benches in the playground, and this time we were set to work on the circular bench at the front.

Before getting going with the painting, we went round with brushes to remove the leaves, bird mess and other debris. Then we decanted the paint into tubs and got going, starting at each end of the bench and meeting in the middle.

We made short work of the task and decided to do a section of the back of the bench to improve the view from the playground.

After a group shot in the pirate ship we headed to the high street to enjoy coffees and snacks in the warm October sunshine!
