Shooters Hill 6th Form College
Shooters Hill 6th Form College students help out at the Garrison
On 31st January and the 21st February we had a group from the Shooters Hill 6th Form College attending the Church for an hour to work on the land around the Church and to sweep out the porches. The students have learning difficulties but make up for any such issues with their enthusiasm, and the encouragement of Ruth McCulloch and the other teachers.
This practice of having students from the College, who have signed up for a gardening course, working on cutting back brambles, raking leaves and generally tidying up, now goes back for a few years. We enjoy their visits which culminate with a cold drink and a biscuit when their work has been done. Usually we have about 8 students and Ruth and one or two of her colleagues to supervise the work.
This type of activity is central to the Trust’s determination to reach out to the community and share the Church with many and diverse groups.
