IT was all hands on deck when 27 Cowdray team members swooped on Easebourne Primary School for Operation DIY SOS.
They were taking part in Environment Day at the school where Lord Cowdray is patron.
And the workforce from the estate’s parks and gardens, works and woods department set about installing a water butt, changing locks, putting up shelves, mending potholes, removing dangerous branches in the school’s woodland, servicing showers, cleaning a five metre high canopy, building a path from the car park, making good the long jump sandpit, extending fences, replacing cracked paving slabs and repainting the minibus spaces ready for the arrival of two new minibuses.
They even put up an old London Transport bus stop sign, part of a buddy bus stop where children feeling left out at play time can be scooped up by friends.
Headteacher Johnny Culley thanked Cowdray site foreman Carl Dixon: “To walk around the site and see so many improvements is mind blowing.”
