A team of Irwin
M&E employees recently completed a voluntary Community Gardening Project at
Edenderry Nursery, Portadown.
The bunch of
merry workers set off, equipped with power washers, timber, paint, saws and paint
to transform the existing play area into a colourful multi-use play zone, with secret
garden, kids-sized car wash, kitchen pantry, and kids picnic area.
wooden playhouses were repaired with new wood panelling and painted bright
colours. Recycled electrical cable drums were sanded down and colour stained to
create the ideal picnic tables and stools for little people. New fencing was
erected, and wooden planters and bench seats were re-painted to improve the
delivers mechanical and electrical maintenance contracts for the Education
Authority right across Northern Ireland. ‘We very often hear how schools like
Edenderry Nursery School are struggling with budgets so we are delighted to be
given the opportunity to give a little back to the local education community’
commented Keith Stewart, Managing Director of Irwin M&E. ‘Our employees
love to get ‘hands-on’ and get a real sense of teamwork and accomplishment when
they see the end result.’
Principal Mrs Bovis, was delighted with the rejuvenated play zone and commented
that the bright colours, new furniture and different play areas all help to
enhance the kids’ learning and play experiences. ‘We are very thankful for
local companies like Irwin M&E volunteering for projects like these. One of
our staff members alerted us to the opportunity of volunteers and we were
thrilled when we heard they would help us.’
