Our shed roof was leaking badly and everything inside was being destroyed. Thanks to BAE and their contractors who have completely recovered the roof and used the very latest liquid plastics to ensure a high performance protection and waterproofing system. All materials, scaffolding and labour were provided without any charge to school. Once again BAE you have come to our rescue and we cannot thank you enough for supporting our school and the local community.
School received a cheque today for £256.91 for The Canberra Club based at BAE's site in Samlesbury. he Samlesbury Sports and Social Association have a regular charity collection and Balderstone School were this years nominees. We are very grateful for this donation and we hope to spend the money on some resources for our new wildlife area.
