Back to business

We were delighted to finally install custom made bench and table sets at Grimsargh Green on a lovely sunny day at the end of July. Our first major project since opening after lockdown

This project seemed like one that was never going to be completed. The benches were completed at the end of February and were unable to be installed due to the terrible weather and flooding that followed.

Then lockdown happened and like everyone else, we had to close. The benches languished in our workshop until finally, we were able to install them.

It was good to finally see the benches in their new home. A small group of representatives from Grimsargh Parish Council were joined by Cllr David Borrow, The Mayor of Preston to see the benches installed.

This was also the first outreach project our two newest members of staff were involved in.

Outreach projects like this one are important to Dig In now, more than ever. With limitations on what activities we can do on site and the cancellation of the usual events we would have attended this year, these projects help us to maintain some income to keep us going through these tough times.
