#Day5 LMG #Pocketpark Bench

With a big thanks from us all to Dan the Carver and Jen for the wonderful creation they have made from all our ideas. The paint has been added to the carvings done. Now just to add a coat of oil and secure in place.

Also we had a visit from Tesco Bags of Help earlier to see the bench we are very grateful for the funding they provided to make it all possible.

The biggest thanks of course goes to the Arches Local community who provided the inspiration and came out to help with its creation, its been great fun.
