Event description

Description

This primary school located in Ely, Cardiff currently has 240 children enrolled. The school would benefit from any improvements made to the outside facilities.

The school would like employee volunteer help to improve several outside areas

The area surrounding the pond is becoming overgrown and requires weeding and the brambles cutting back. There are tyre-planters which could be planted and if possible the whole area made more interactive for children. Perhaps a digging area for the children could be created and any other ideas the volunteers have could be suggested and taken forward. The children would help create some designs of what they would like to see in the pond garden area.

  • There is a seat which requires attention as the wood may need replacing and treating

  • There are several tyre-planters scattered around the school grounds which require topping up and planting. The school would like many of them planted with herbs.

  • There is a willow arch in need of weaving

  • There are several wooden planters requiring weeding, planting and treating with wood preserver. The planters containing herbs would benefit from netting to keep cats off them.

The forest school area requires some improvements to make it more usable. The area is currently very muddy as it has no paths laid, there is some cutting back to do as well as planting and creating a vegetable area and compost area. If volunteers have basic woodwork skills they could also make a small gate for the entrance to the area as there is a fence in situ but no gate on it.

Additional Information

  • The school has a very limited budget for materials but the PTA would be willing to fundraise if given sufficient notice
  • Volunteers will require a budget or willingness to undertake some fundraising for materials to complete all of the tasks
  • Employee volunteers could work alongside parent volunteers who may be willing to support on the day.
