Yaxham Woodlands Group were delighted to install their new picnic table and bench at Pinns Corner on Saturday 4th November. The bench is constructed of 100% recycled plastic which is safe and splinter -free, durable, hard – wearing and easy to clean. It is UV resistant, and weather – proof giving a long lifespan, plus it will never need painting or treating!

The table is family-friendly, having seating for 8 with room for buggies and wheel -chairs. Despite torrential rain, as can be seen from the photograph, the group persevered and the bench is now available for all to enjoy.

Funding for the project came from the Yaxham Parish Charity, in response to a Grant Application submitted by Chairman Ben Futter and Simon Salter. Parish Chairman and Trustee Peter Lowings said “The Charity was delighted to help such a worthy cause, the Charity is encouraging applications from Parish Organisations who need funding.”

The Group meets on the first Saturday of every month, between 10.00am and 12 noon, at Pinns Corner to keep it tidy, free from rubbish and encourage wildlife and habitat development. Refreshments are always served and everyone, young or old, is very welcome to attend. For further details see the Facebook page or email yaxhamwoodlands@gmail.com
