A team from Paint AME recently visited Meadow Primary School to help transform their recreation garden.
The recreation garden had 16 large high level planters that had gone rotten and become unsafe for the children to use. The school wanted to create low level beds so each class could plant different vegetables to promote healthy living. The project involved clearing all the old planters and building six new large low level beds and six high level beds to allow the children to re-plant.
As you can see the team did a fantastic job and really made a difference to the school. The kids are now able to get out there and start planting their own fruit and veg. Well done to all involved: Colin Smith, Keith Brownbill, Paul Roberts, Bruce Hack, Colin Smith, Keith Brownbill, Nuno Duarte, Alan Colclough, Mark Pye and Paul Sweeney.
That’s not all! We’ve also had seven colleagues from Paint Shop donate 280 hours to Bickerstaffe Voluntary Church of England School. The team helped to improve the school grounds that were looking tired and unloved, spending five days working tirelessly revitalising the area.
Some of the activities involved, a deep clean of path walkways. Woodwork had to be treated and restored back to good condition. Overgrown trees and shrubs had to be cut back. All branches were shredded and scattered across the cleared landscape.
The team also flagged an area around the playground which will be used when the children perform plays to parents. The parents and teachers couldn’t thank the team enough as it would have been impossible for the school to do this for themselves.
Mike Chadwick (Paint Shop manager) and Ged Thurston (Project Coordinator) would like to thank the team for their dedication and hard work. Well done to: Darren Hodson (Project Manager) Mike Feeney (Production Leader) Mike Condron, Dave Baker, Steve Meadows, Steve Gray and Andrew Ford.
