Volunteers roll up their sleeves for Herd Farm

Volunteers roll up their sleeves for Herd Farm

Arena Group volunteers have returned to Herd Farm Activity Centre to continue their good work.

Herd Farm is an educational resource centre offering activities for young people at risk and those with disabilities. The centre is council run and relies on help from volunteers to carry out some of the maintenance work.

Here at Arena we recognise the importance of the centre as a vital community resource. This is the third time a team of volunteers have attended this year to help with groundworks and maintenance.

The team were kept busy, firstly clearing some steps after recent mole activity before working on the mountain biking track. A new section of track was in need of banking to aid cyclists in navigating corners, and resurfacing to ensure it was safe. After digging parts of the course out, our volunteers re-laid the track using materials recycled from elsewhere around the farm.

This year's work at Herd Farm has included painting, gardening, trench digging, path clearing and the creation of a barbeque area. Arena employees are encouraged to use their two annual days to volunteer in the local community.
