Last week, members from across Saxon Weald spent the day lending a hand at St Mary's CE Primary School.
The eager group of volunteers were able to apply some tender loving care to the school grounds. Together the group tackled a range of tasks including painting classrooms, cleaning the outside fence, repairing a shed roof and helping the school's caretaker put together a climbing frame for the playground.
Alex Bird, headteacher at St Mary's School thanked the team for their hard work:
"We are so, so grateful for all of the work the team carried out. Saxon Weald has been such a blessing to us. The volunteers were so positive and achieved so much in the time available. I'm delighted to have had the group's help."
Saxon Weald values its role in the community. Each member of staff is given the opportunity once a year to volunteer for one of our community days. Not only is it great to see the positive impact the community days have on local organisations, it's also fantastic to see members of staff coming together to make a difference to the community.
