Beyond the Wall isn’t just a gardening project, we do lots more besides learning horticulture and gardening skills. Cooking and ICT as well as well as music and art, all feature on our timetable.
The spaces that we use to do some of these activities were starting to look a little tired, so were in need of a lick of paint. With a week of frost and cold forecast, it was apparent that it would not be possible to be working outside doing some of the jobs that were planned, so attention was turned to working inside, decorating.
With very kind donation of paint and the hours volunteered by Dave and Philip, staff were able to work alongside volunteers to decorate the kitchen, ICT suite, toilet first aid room and office in around a week!
With a few new fixtures added the rooms were given a fresh new look and have already been a pleasure for everyone to work in.
We are now looking ahead, inspired by what we have decorated already, and have three painting projects ahead of us this year. The catering kitchen needs a revamp, the apple store needs refreshing and we would like to transform the summer house into a fresh and bright space where people can chill, chat and enjoy the summer away from the midday sun.
If you would like to make a donation, have paint and brushes, or would like to volunteer to lend a hand in making our plans a reality please be in touch, by phone or email.
