RoWAN and Volunteer Week

I am delighted to support RoWAN, whose volunteers - like so many others - contribute so much to community life. This project involves the pupils and staff of alness Academy to create outdoor picnic seats from waste items in the school court yard. It combines voluntary work with a clear environmental message that inspires young people. I joined school students in applying the first coat of varnish to the waste-incorporated seating under the supervision of sunburst seat designer Jena.
