Mole Hall - the finished project:

The education centre - looking almost good as new after a lot of patching up and re-painting
A large team spent the whole day rubbing down and re-painting every bench in the park!

The newly painted pink walls and painted gates and fencing outside monkey house! Isis Holmes loved painting a whole wall pink!
The monkey house interior after the removal of various structures, items and much muck!

The old pond removed and in with the new - many young people spent hours demolishing the old pond and preparing for the new pond lining to be put in place
Jorge Serra and the carpentry team built a wonderful canopy for the cafeteria area
This is one example of various areas of land that were covered in trees, shrubbery and rubble!
The finished mural in the education centre - wonderful and great fun!
Relief Society Sisters did wonders making the cafeteria look great with newly made curtains and tie backs
These sheds, among others took the whole day to make as good as new. Grand job guys!
Some of our fine young men did a great job creating a raised roundabout out of railway sleepers for the car park entrance
Miss Beevers takes the final snaps of the day while Mel Holmes points out the day's success to Bex West

Mole Hall Wildlife Park Helping Hands work in progress...

Mormon Helping Hands to the rescue...

Some heavy and skilled clearing work was needed to get to some of the work sites. Here's our very own Jonathon West wielding a chainsaw!

I had never seen quite so much garden furniture in one place. A large group worked tirelessly to rub down and re-paint every outdoor furniture item in the park!

Tons of earth and rubble had to be cleared from various areas of the park

The project was ideal for families who could work together or easily be in close proximity and view of the creche facilities.

Roz & Chrissie LaFevre get stuck in!

Bishop Johnson loving that strimmer!

I missed every opportunity to take a good shot of Jeremy felting the roof. This is the closest I got. He needed that hat - the sun was relentless!

The Monkey House was transformed from a shack to a palace in just one day!

Measuring up the felt for the shed roofs

The ace carpentry team - lead by Jorge Serra!

Magnificent patchwork and rendering by Mervyn Holmes

The Peacocks kept a close eye on things all day!

The mid-stages of the beautiful and fun mural for the education centre wall

Some of the youth got stuck into pond demolition and re-filling

Various shots: the Fagg family and others paint the monkey house; some young men creating a raised bed roundabout for the car park entrance; Bernie and co. painting the monkey house walls.

Missionaries help to muck out the monkey house; Gloria Watson and Marion Biggs greet people as they arrive in the afternoon; mural painting; a family working together to paint furniture; Temple Futter worked hard all day on the digger; President Fagg and President Lau take a moment after mucking out and raking!

Galleywood Heritage Centre June 27th 2009: The Big Day in pictures!

Some of the Helping Hands crew raring to get started on their share of the work!

Relief Society Sisters from all over the Stake worked hard to create a beautiful quilt which was later presented to the GHC in November 2009

Tons of earth and rubble was removed to make clear walk-ways and space for fresh planting.

Tree felling and clearing shrubbery for footpaths and a large pond
