Volunteers rescue activity centre after wet winter

Volunteers rolled up their sleeves at the weekend for a spot of early spring cleaning.

Longridge Activity Centre in Bisham flooded twice over the winter, so volunteers were drafted in on Saturday and yesterday to get their hands dirty and bring it up to shape.

Helping hands carried out gardening work, painting and helped fix fences to bring the Quarry Wood Road centre back to life after a wet winter.

Site manager Emmaleen Dean said: "The main issue is clearing up the river front so we can restore some of the activity parts for the new season.

"The flooding covered the entire site, and though we have been open, we have had to cancel a lot of things.

"We restored the inside but outside needs a bit of love and care.

"Even though it has been raining people have come in and we're very grateful for that."
