Logs chopped for Hartpury elderly

The wood will be stored and distributed by local milkman Vic Smith.

A group of students have chopped over 60 bags of wood to give away to those in need.

The logs will provide fuel for the winter and will be distributed around Hartpury village.

Students from Cam House, Alderman Knight and Sandford schools undertook the work with guidance from Rob Warren at Hartpury College.

Local milkman Vic Smith will be storing and delivering the logs to those people who need it most.

The students, who visit Hartpury College once a week to support their curriculum based activities, decided they would like to repeat the worthwhile scheme after its success last year.

Graham Van der Lely, Chair of Governors at Hartpury College, was the guest of honour as the first bag of logs was officially handed over to Vic Smith.

Rob Warren and his students then helped to give out bags to the locals who had turned up to collect and congratulate the students.

"This is a great credit to all the students involved, who were prepared to work hard for the benefit of the community," said Graham.

"We are proud of their efforts and thanks must also go to Rob for coordinating the project once again this year".

The students also designed and wrote Christmas cards which were attached to each bag.
