Helping out with Ground Force Day at St Thomas of Canterbury Primary School, Guildford

We were delighted to lend a free skip to St Thomas of Canterbury Primary School in Guildford for its spring Ground Force Day – when children, teachers and volunteers rolled up their sleeves and transformed outdoor areas.

The army of helpers got stuck into a range of projects such as clearing away brambles and rubbish to make space for a new compost area; getting rid of rotting old fence posts and installing new ones; creating a stunning wild grass section and cleaning up the sensory garden – which involved sweeping up lots of leaves and clipping back overgrown shrubs and plants.

Joanne Potgieter of the school’s PTA said:  “We cannot thank Chambers enough for donating the skip, it was invaluable to us as we really got rid of so much! As a charity, our PTA relies heavily on the generosity and kind spirit of local businesses and for that we are so grateful.

“It was such a joy to walk into school on Monday morning to see all our hard work and beautiful spring-ready school grounds. Best of all the children loved the day. They really got involved in all the work and loved making a difference to their school.”

Emma Chambers, from Chambers, added: “The Ground Force Day has really improved the outdoor environment at St Thomas of Canterbury Primary and we are really pleased to have been able to help. We lent a 6 cubic yard skip and it proved to be just the job! As a Guildford business we are always keen to support local causes.”

Chambers has a range of domestic skips available for hire, and we recycle up to 98% of the materials recovered so it is sustainable way of removing waste from your home. For more information visit see our website or call 01483 504 595.
