Southall School Volunteering Success at Telford Town Park

Working with Telford Town Park rangers for one hour per week, pupils have tidied the amphitheatre and repainted all of the steps. The children began the works in May and have volunteered every Wednesday afternoon since.


Yesterday marked Southall School’s last session volunteering in the park, Councillor Carolyn Healy attended to hand out medals the school had created to celebrate the pupil’s hard work and dedication to the volunteering project.  


Cllr Carolyn Healy, Cabinet Member for Visitor Economy said “It’s fantastic that we can celebrate #LoveParks week with the children of Southall School. Their time taken to volunteer as a group at Telford Town Park is greatly appreciated.”


“Volunteering projects like this help to keep the park alive and contribute to its outstanding beauty for everybody to enjoy.” 


A Southall School pupil said: “I’d like to see people use the space now and to keep it clean and tidy”.
