On Saturday 11th June, a team from Exwick Heights joined forces with a team from Alcoa Howmet (led by employee and parent, Mr Price), to make some raised beds for a new vegetable garden.
The teams started bright and early on Saturday morning by moving heavy wooden sleepers to the grassy bank near the hall, where they were used to construct six raised beds. Next came the task of filling them; many, many wheelbarrows full of soil were pushed up the slope and emptied into the beds. It was quite a workout!
It was a fantastic morning, which resulted in an exciting new teaching and learning area being established. Many thanks to both teams for giving your time and energy to this project; and to Mr Price for working with us at Exwick Heights to set this up, with the support from Alcoa Howmet.
