Paxton Lends a Hand in Moulsecoomb Primary School Gardens
Brighton, UK – 1st October 2019
Brighton technology company Paxton lent a helping hand in the gardens of Moulsecoomb Primary School and it was such a success a team will be returning each month.
As part of Paxton’s commitment to giving back to its local community, the team spent their lunchbreak tending to the school’s world and environment gardens. The work included digging, clearing out the chicken coop, pruning and picking a huge number of plums which were used for the school’s harvest festival.
School Governor, Warren Carter, said: “Our award-winning school grounds are a fantastic space for children to learn and play. We have orchards, chickens, vegetable gardens and our roundhouses where we teach pupils from across the city the pre-history curriculum. But with school budget cuts these would be impossible to maintain without the fantastic support from companies like Paxton, who in just one hour gave our environment and world gardens a complete make-over!”
Paxton Project and Events Manager, Kate Hotson, said: “We strive to be a good neighbour and supporting our local community is hugely important to us. Working outdoors in the fresh air is also great for our employees’ wellbeing. A lot of upkeep is needed to keep the school gardens in good shape and we’re really pleased we’ll be going back regularly.”
Paxton, which is based in Home Farm Road, designs and manufactures market-leading security systems.
