Building retaining wall at Malvern Valley Primary School”


From: Saturday April 8, 2017, 9:00 am

To: Saturday April 8, 2017, 3:00 pm

Our project with Malvern Valley Primary School to help them put in a retaining wall, will commence on the morning of Saturday 8th April and if needed continue into Sunday 9th April.

We need 6-10 volunteers, patient and strong with work boots and other work appropriate clothing. We will advise further on tools, tasks and precise times as we get closer.

For those who are keen and patient but not feeling super strong I suspect that smoko or lunch would be a welcome contribution! Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Start time is 9:00am

Required - 5 or 6 volunteers to work on either/both Sat 8 and Sun 9 to clear site, dig post holes, concrete in posts, place sleepers in position and backfill.


Desirable - post hold shovel, crow bar, wheel barrow.


We will be taking down the old fence and removing the concrete underneath it as well as the spoon drain.


There are 22 post holes to dig and poles to cement in place and then sleepers to be set between the poles and backfilled.


Please let Alick know if you are available - to help on either day.


There will be more details to follow at this week's meeting on Wednesday.
