In April 2018 we started on the Alverbridge Nursery project. The project involved taking a muddy area (when wet) and turning it into a play area of artificial turf.
Using the skills and good team of the Gosport Shed members the project ran smoothly and to plan.
The icing on the cake for this project was seeing the children eager to get onto the newly laid grass and to watch them running around the blossom trees
