After postponing the project TWICE because of bad weather, at 8.30 a.m. on the 18th and 19th of November the staff from GSK pharmaceuticals took up their posts armed to the teeth with spades, forks, paint brushes, compacters, grinders, hammers and scrapers!!! The battle was about to begin and the troops were ready!! Competently led by their organiser and captain…Candice January!
The NEWKIDZ team leaders gave the call and the encounter began.
Dust flew everywhere (aided largely by a gusting South-Easter…he he!) as the guys and girls threw their spades mercilessly at some uneven ground that needed to be levelled. The compacter started chugging through the upturned soil, flattening it with each pounding vibration of its intense mass.
Ceilings were being ripped out, walls being knocked down and play-structures erected. The gruelling heat and dust started taking its toll, but luckily Wynland Roll-on-lawn came to the rescue, spreading a lush green lawn over the enemy in minutes! Strong fence poles were sunk and cemented in place. It was time for the troops to retreat, regroup and take in some much needed sustenance provided by Fedics (allies of course).
