A group of volunteers are poised to paint the Village Crossings gate over the weekend, weather permitting.
The Volunteers include Coxhoe residents, the Parish Clerk, Claire Llewelyn and the voluntary web administrator. Claire said, ‘We initially asked for quotes to undertake the work professionally. However, a local resident responded to our social media publicity to suggest that volunteers might come forward while volunteering himself. We subsequently had a great response to further social media posts and a volunteer team was assembled. The Parish Council is delighted at the response by committed members of our community and thank them in advance for the work they are prepared to do.’
The work involves scraping off flaking paint, sanding the gates down, priming and top coating.
If you pass them at work over the weekend please give them a wave, or a toot if you are driving.
