Tesco Community Volunteering Day 22nd May 2019
On 22nd May 2019, twenty-four Tesco members of staff volunteered a whole day of their time to help us re-condition our raised beds and make instruments with the pupils for Stevenage Festival in June 2019. All classes had fun making shakers and drums, which have been sent to the Stevenage Music Centre. They will be given out to the public on 1st June to join in a musical parade around St. George's Square in Stevenage to open the Stevenage Festival. After a busy day and with the help of our volunteers, we had made 71 instruments with Mondrian designs, colourful and all playing a different sound. We have now also got good quality soil in our raised beds, thanks to our volunteers who worked in 5 tons of soil conditioner with forks and spades. Thank you to the volunteers! We hope you will come back and visit us.
Here you can see some of our instruments we made in action at the Stevenage Festival Day in June 2019.
