The guys have spent the last three days clearing another of the college gardens. The first two photographs were taken in January 2011 when Simon went to have a look at the garden to see how much work would be needed to clear it.
A year later the guys started to work on its clearance to prepare it for the landscaping. Skips, trailers and tonnes bags full of rubbish have been removed.
By the end of three days, as can be seen by the before and after photographs, a huge amount of progress has been made, but a lot of work still lays ahead over the next few weeks.
