Communtiy make over in Hardwick

Volunteers from across South Cambs armed with paint brushes took to the under 5's play area in Hardwick to give it a new lease of life.

Mears who provide responsive repairs to 6000 homes on behalf of South Cambridge District Council approached Hardwick Parish Council and asked them what they could do to support the local community.

The parish council nominated the play area to encourage younger families to enjoy the park and take advantage of it this summer.
All of the children's apparatus has been painted and Mears also fixed a neighboring fence which was slightly worse for wear.

Travis Perkins kindly donated paint brushes and sandpaper allowing Mears' five handy men and four parish council volunteers to get the job done in one evening.

Ian Storr, Chairman of Hardwick Parish Council said "the communication and cooperation between us and Mears has been very smooth from start to finish. The play area looks much fresher and thanks to Mears we hope the children enjoy it for many years to come. A further thank you for going the extra mile and mending the broken slats in the fence"

Phil Turner Manager Mears South Cambs said 'We are delighted to have worked on this project, it shows a team effort from Mears, Travis Perkins and the Parish Council working together to improve the lives of the local residents.'
