New Bubble Benches
Students at South Dartmoor Community College are delighted with the ten new picnic benches bought for the school by the Friends of South Dartmoor Association (FOSDA).
Mary-Anne Course of FoSDA said:
"Students were in dire need of some more picnic benches to sit and eat lunch on and for general use at break times. Because of the pandemic, they are having to spend as much time outside as possible and all the children are in separate year group bubbles. This was really difficult as they were having to sit on the concrete floor or stand, as the grass was too wet and muddy. The seating we were able to buy is brilliant because it is made of recycled plastic and has a 25 year lifetime guarantee, so it doesn't require any ongoing maintenance."
The donors were:
Glendinning (via Barry Wilson, MD) - £950
Dartmoor National Park - Community Support Grant (via Emma Stockley) - £500
Devon County Councillor Stuart Barker - £1,000
Glendinning also kindly donated 10 tonnes of gravel, making a huge difference to the area where it’s been used.
