CSV Redditch staff and BBC Hereford & Worcester Action plus a group of helpers, including volunteers from Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, spent a day at St Luke’s First School in Headless Cross, Redditch to celebrate CSV's Make A Difference Day.
Reg Moule was broadcasting live from the event for BBC Hereford and Worcester's Saturday gardening programme and was on hand to offer expert advice.
The aim for the day was to makeover the school's playground and the Reception Class play area.
Fences were painted, a sandpit cover was made and the old sand replaced with new.
Numerous planters were painted in the playground and then planted with polyanthus, bulbs, heathers and winter pansies.
Bark was put down to enhance borders and a wall was painted.

Unfortunately due to damp conditions it was not possible to paint a mural and re mark the games on the playground but these jobs are due to be completed in the next couple of weeks.
Special thanks go to all the volunteers and to those companies who donated goods for this "Ground Force" type makeover, these include:
- Banks Green Nurseries
- Hurrans Garden Centre
- BOC Industrial
- Edwards Buildbase
- Severn Waste
- S E Davis
A great time was had by all the helpers who felt they had definitely MADE A DIFFERENCE for the pupils of St Lukes, whilst discovering muscles they'd forgotten they had!
