What an amazing surprise to hear from Kirsty Ireland community officer for Morrisons in Kendal saying they had a donation for us! Not only have we received a grant for us to work at the Westmorland hospital and schools locally during 2018-19 but we have also received £600 of equipment and resources. Thanks to the volunteers who went and collected it all.
Kendal In Bloom 2018 GOLD Award
Stramongate school were thrilled to be awarded the Gold level this year for their Peace and Unity display of RAF planes made of recycled materials. The flower displays were in the shape of the Peace and Unity symbols where our adult volunteer group shared the gardening with Stramongate schools Garden Gang watering and weeding the displays to keep them looking vibrant.
A huge congratulations to the community team that supported the school such as the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from 5th + 8th Kendal for supporting the RAF themed event. As we know adults like to take part in competitions too, so when Ali and Jan created their recycled plane, Mr Poole proudly gave them a head teachers sticker for taking part.
