It was with much delight we took a step closer to completing our community garden on Friday. Volunteers from Amey came and worked hard to further the project.
The aim of the project is to make the grounds of our regency property in Lansdown, Cheltenham into an accessible garden for use by the community. The garden has been designed to maximise wildlife, to give areas for growing fruits and vegetables as well as quieter areas for relaxation. In addition we have a summer house for use by visiting groups and we hope that we will be able to offer green space for use by local schools who lack this valuable resource.
Thankfully our volunteers were blessed with bright sunshine and achieved a great deal on the accessible pathways, pond and the summerhouse. Our Chairman Les Bonney said:
‘We are delighted with the hands on support from Amey who have made a huge difference to our garden. Amey’s work has made it much more accessible for the vulnerable people who live there, and more available to our local community.’
We are looking forward to seeing the garden at it’s best in the coming months thanks to the hard work and contribution made by the Amey team along with our regular dedicated volunteers.
