A team of volunteers pulled up their sleeves at the weekend to offer a helping hand in sprucing up Langtoft Pre-School in time for the children to enjoy summer.

More than 15 volunteers, including members from the Deeping Round Table unleashed their DIY skills on Saturday morning to help revamp the pre-school both inside and out.

Deeping Round Table offered to help the pre-school after its appeal for help and provided all the materials and equipment needed to complete a number of jobs at the school that needed urgent attention.

The pre-school, which is a registered charity and relies heavily on funding to help make ends meet, was thrilled at the generous offer of help from the Deeping Round Table.

As part of the work on Saturday, the team of volunteers carried out a number of jobs including helping to make repairs to the main entrance of the school, installing new blinds in the class rooms and helping to make general repairs to the doors.

The biggest job on the day involved replacing the old school fence, with much stronger and taller fence panels, which they painted afterwards.

Sisters, Maisie and Amelie Buggs, aged seven and three helped to give the fence a fresh lick of paint with their excellent painting skills.

The girls’ mother Trayci Morris who is a committee member at Langtoft Pre-School said: “It was an amazing day having everyone pull together to do something for the community. The children, parents and staff are thrilled with the new changes that help improve the school and we are all very thankful to everyone who has helped us.

“The new fence will help to provide the pre-school with greater security, helping to keep the children safe.”

As a reward for their hard work the volunteers enjoyed a special delivery of free bacon rolls supplied by Andrea Elliott from Simply Delicious in Langtoft.

Some of the volunteers who helped out on the day included, James Wright, chairman of Deeping Round Table, Jez Willoughby from JW Home and Garden Services, Mandy and Will Langham, Paul Feetham, Sarah Edmonds, Lucie and Adrian Cunnington and Fiona Beaton-Thorne.

Waterside Garden Centre in Baston has also donated some plants to the pre-school, which will be placed around the pond in the school garden.
