Are you interested in helping our tenants bring their communal gardens back to life? Our Retirement Schemes across city are looking for experienced gardeners (or a keen amateur) to help restore these wonderful spaces back into shape. Since the beginning of the pandemic, our tenants have not been able to care for their once-loved outdoor spaces, and they are in need of a friendly and patient volunteer to help out. So if you have green fingers, and want to help they elderly tenants in our Retirement schemes to be able to enjoy their green spaces again, get in touch!

Training and gardening tools will be provided, times and commitment can be decided between the volunteer and coordinator prior to starting.
