On Wednesday 11th September 13 volunteers from The Aviator Hotel Farnborough went along to The Barnsbury School in Woking to help them continue with their Sensory Garden Project.
The Team were put to work straight away and tackled a mass of brambles to create a woodland path for the children to enjoy as part of their Forest School and added area of their Sensory Garden. The team also created a natural path using branches, removed tons of woodland waste and cleared the trees so the children could climb them. On top of this the team offered advice to the school on tips for the Sensory Garden.
Louise Hammond, Deputy Headteacher at The Barnsbury said "The volunteers from Aviator were incredibly helpful, proactive and were really keen to support the school in clearing the woods for the children. They were willing to get their hands dirty and get stung in order to create three paths. They also suggested ideas to further enhance the woodland area for example we now have a clear trail with the thanks to natural branch edging – so the children can’t go off piste, get stung or lost!"
Dominic Osborne, General Manager at The Aviator said "I am hugely proud of our team of 13 volunteers. Following the volunteering day, I received nothing but positive remarks from our teams. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity. It was a chance to help the
school in creating a safe exploration area for the children whilst at the same time it allowed us to team build and give back to our local community, which is so important for us at Aviator. We very much look forward to the next volunteering day via CMPP!
We are hugely proud of you all too! Well done all, great job!
