‘Many hands make light work’ and that has certainly been the case thanks to a group of students supported by the MacIntyre Charity, who during the summer term have carried out work experience and voluntary gardening for the Museum.
Well done and thank you to the 10 students and their MacIntyre staff for all your hard work and fantastic achievements!
The group worked as a team to weed, clear, dig, plant, sand, paint, stain, rake, sweep, lift and shift over nine Mondays through rain and shine and alot of bramble to develop their independence and life skills.
We are grateful to the funders #iwill Heart of Bucks who enabled the students to work on this project to transform the Museum’s sensory garden and create new outdoor immersive play areas for our local families and visitors. Why not come along yourself this summer to enjoy the spaces created by these amazing young people?
