Not only are the team showing excellent initiative in the more obvious aspects of the clean-up, a number of participants have also been able to show off their mechanical and basic electrical skills, servicing the tools essential for getting the work done.
Now, thanks to the new Activity Supervisor Bryce Kendall, a recognised “driving force”, the team have six working mowers and four working whipper snippers - a massive achievement in a short amount of time.
Glenn Green, Activity Supervisor, put his carpentry skills to use constructing a chair from wooden pallets. The team have also constructed new garden beds to brighten the community.
As the work continues, the remaining lawnmowers and whipper snippers that aren’t working will be used to help train participants in an upcoming Cert IV in Automotive.
Great work team!
