Community Volunteers Take Part in School Painting Day

June 11, 2018

On Saturday 9th June, enthusiastic volunteers from Legal & General Homes picked up rollers and paint brushes to help Edgbarrow School – Crowthorne carry out painting refurbishments. Parents, students, and local businesses all gathered around to take part in the painting day.

Starting off early, a total of six Legal & General Homes staff and two employees from Lloyd Davenports (Plastering & Drylining Subcontractor at Buckler’s Park, Phase 1) were part of the group ready to combine efforts to redecorate the school.

They began clearing and washing the walls to be filled and sanded down so that the painting could begin. By the afternoon, 5 classrooms and the adjoining corridors had been completed and additional work began in the common room.

By the end of the day, all volunteers had made a significant impact on the appearance of the school.

The support was well received and the school was very grateful for all the time and effort put in. Our volunteers said that it felt really good to give something back to the community and it was incredibly rewarding to see the local collaboration to support this great cause.

Edgbarrow holds painting and gardening days a few times throughout the year and welcomes everyone to come along and join in.
