Nine volunteers from Marks and Spencers at Kendal came into school today. A yearly initiative run by the company allows members of staff to volunteer for one day a year in company time. This year we were very lucky to be able to welcome nine people into our school to help Abi and Pete in our growing area and around the rest of the school gardens.
Flower beds have been weeded, path edges cleared of weeds and swept, bark area tidied ( one child commented " I didn't know there was a step there") compost heap dug out, seeds sown and plants planted.
As you can see from the photos they filled a dumpy bag with weeds, it was so heavy the children couldn't lift it!
Our visitors joined us for lunch in the hall much to the excitement of the children.
After lunch Class 3 spent some time in the garden planting seeds and making beautiful CD twisters which they hung on the trellis to help stop the birds in the garden from eating our seeds.
Thank You to all the volunteers our garden looks amazing.
