Lineham Farm Children's Centre

What's the challenge?

Lineham Farm Children's Centre is a childrens charity based in Eccup in Leeds that provides residential weeks during term time for 8 - 12 year old children.

They invite schools from underprivileged areas in Leeds to stay with them from Monday to Friday with their school friends and teachers.  During the week they take part in outdoor activities like high ropes, climbing, archery, bushcraft, orienteering and animal care.

The activity workers are role models for the young children and during the week they boost confidence and improve morale - the children learn about caring for the environment and treating each other with respect.

Lineham would love a team to give their decking area (adjacent to their restaurant) a revamp. The area needs a general tidy up and the decking, fencing and bench need repainting and protecting from the elements.

They also have some pots and hanging baskets that need some plants and flowers to make them look pretty. The area is currently not being used to its full potential, and they would welcome the team's thoughts on how they can make the best out of the space for the children in their care.
