Church spruces up Weston's beauty spots

KIND-hearted churchgoers spent their Saturday clearing up Weston’s beauty spots and painting fences and classrooms around the town.

Armed with paint brushes, rakes and bin bags, 40 volunteers from St Paul’s Church in Walliscote Road weeded gardens, raked parks and painted railings to improve the town for residents and visitors.

The worshippers painted a room in Walliscote Primary School so that staff can turn it into a library. In Clarence Park volunteers raked up leaves and painted the gates.

The railings around the floral clock, opposite The Odeon, were given a lick of paint, fences at Mendip Green First School were painted and volunteers also helped to tidy up people’s gardens.

The event was organised by Churches Together as part of the national campaign The Noise which encourages churches to help improve the communities around them.

Rob Cromwell from St Paul’s Church who helped to organise the event said: “A lot of people stopped to ask what we were doing and to say thank you.

“The aim of the project was to serve the community and show God’s love to the community.”
