Last Thursday we appealed for help to have the children's play area fenced according to Government Covid-19 Guidance so we could open the rest of the Green. And to our delight on the very same day the Project Manager of Vinci Construction UK Ltd at the new Kings School site contacted us to say they they could not only provide the fencing but come and erect it for us!!
True to their word Guy Downes of Vinci Construction and his team arrived first thing on Friday and in no time the job was done. Here they are with Trustee Roger Cousin, social distancing by the play area before taking a look at our sundial then heading back to Kings School.
We are so grateful to Vinci for their support and we have of course written to thank them wholeheartedly.
There's just a couple of things to do now to make sure everything is safe, then you'll be able to come on the Green again. The wildflower meadow's looking good. Keep an eye open for these lovely orchids near the bench at hilltop.
See you there.
