Introducing BrookDen!

This term, the PTA will transform a patch of neglected woodland near the school kitchen into an exciting natural play area. We are employing an experienced Volunteer Coordinator to lead weekly work parties on the woodland but we need YOUR help! We need 4—8 volunteers each session, no experience needed, just enthusiasm, working 9:00—12:00 or 12:30 to 3:30pm. Hot soup provided! We also need donations of tools like spades, trowels, wheelbarrows and gloves and even logs for playing on.
