This is a story about a bench. This particular bench had been given to us by local resident, Kate. It had seen better days but we refurbished it and gave it a whole new lease of life.
This is so good on so many levels. Local community helping out, restoring a broken bench, giving others a chance to sit and have a picnic and enjoy the greenway, This could have so easily ended up down the tip, but now gets to live on in useful service for many more years.
Many thanks to Marcus for pulling the bench apart and rebuilding it.
We enjoyed a coffee and macaroon after the long haul of getting the bench in position. And you see that rucksack – that was gifted to us by another lovely local resident, Jemma.
Nice to share a good news story.
