Our Community Paintbrush scheme was asked to support the “Give Your Time” project at Darfield Valley. The ‘Give Your Time’ project is an initiative developed through the Project Improvement Group sessions held with MSBL, Barnsley Metropolitan BC (BMBC) and Carillion FM. The initiative sets about investing in projects and is a great way to give something back to schools and the community; the brief is to develop areas of unloved land with the intension of creating new and exciting play environments for the children.
Volunteers on the first Barnsley “Give Your Time” project included three Bagnalls painters and volunteers from SPV, BMBC, Carillion FM, other supply chain partners, teachers, parents and Governors. All helped to re-energise the nursery area, installing a greenhouse and chalk boards at the rear of the school on Saturday 11th October 2014 at Darfield Valley Primary Academy.
