Wed 8th Jun 2016 - Ventnor Community Early Years Centre, Ventnor. GG # 638.

Terry's Photographs.

Removing the rubble.

"and the plan today is….."

Mark makes sure we always have the BEST tools!

The garden makeover starts.

A technical bit?

Wow, there is soil under all that rubble.

Normal position for the guys - at the sink!

Looking good.

Now…. doesn't that look a whole lot better???

One of the locals calls by to inspect the work.

A new venue for GG this week - at the Early Years Centre, Ventnor. We were tasked to try and convert what can best be described as a bomb site into a garden area for the children to grow things in and to do a complete make-over on a rather overgrown patch of existing garden. With the workforce split into two, each team got stuck in to try and make the magic happen! Team A cleared all the rubbish from the area and started to dig the "soil" over while creating a gated access and repairing the fencing. Team B were over the other side of the car park doing a weeding, trimming and general tidy-up on the garden area. The excellent photographs above (thanks Terry!) show the extent of the work and the improvements made during those few, short hours. Many thanks to the staff who kindly made the tea and coffee for us.
