Restaurant staff help clear village's overgrown allotments

Restaurant staff help clear village's overgrown allotments

STAFF from a fast food restaurant helped clear overgrown allotments in Benson.

The team of 14 from the McDonald’s branch in the village worked at the site off St Helen’s Avenue. They filled a skip, donated by Grundon, with foliage after working for about four hours to help make the area ready for new users.

Councillor Patrica Baylis, chairwoman of the parish council’s recreation and lands committee, said: “Councillors are delighted with the result. The team worked so hard and we are really grateful for their hard graft. We will now be able to rent out the allotment easily, and it looks so much better. Many thanks to McDonalds!”

Claire Ray, assistant manager, added: “We are very happy to have helped out in our community and we look forward to future events.”
