Volunteers dug deep to transform a patch of land into a playground paradise.
A 40-strong team from Careys plc worked over two weekends to pave and turf the garden at Marsh Green Primary School in Dagenham.
Staff at Careys, who make up the demolition team at Ford Dagenham off Thames Avenue, used their expertise in construction for the landscaping, which included building a barbecue for the children and sanding and varnishing wooden benches.
Headteacher at the South Close school, Natalie Sanchez, said the new quad would make “such a difference”.
“The garden is our only grassed outdoor area and to have it totally re-landscaped by so many volunteers is amazing,” she said.
“The children can’t wait to start using garden which will provide an outdoor reading area for our new library. On behalf of all the children I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who gave up their time to help.”
