Six of us got together at our old gardening spot in BH2. St Michael’s school was our destination and this time we were going to do some painting in their pre-school area.

Rachel and Anthony met us outside and showed us where we were needed.

Their pre-school fence was a blend of orange and Rachel had started to paint it a more peaceful sage colour.

Oh man, we LOVE painting so much. And it was the perfect evening for it too. Lots of different conversations topics, soothing task, laughing and catching up in the sunshine.

We worked in pairs on each panel and moved along gradually, and after about an hour we had managed to do most of the fence with a base coat.

We will be back after half term to help with more painting and gardening next time.

Well done everyone, and I think a social in the sunshine is on the cards very soon!!!
