Community garden
brings neighbours together

23 October 2015

A once overgrown garden has been given a new lease of life and has brought neighbours closer together.

Community garden at Eastpool ParkOur customer Tanya Dovey has been busy tackling the community garden at East Pool Park in Redruth, Cornwall – and a £400 grant from us has helped buy water butts, bird boxes, 250 bulbs and compost bins.

Tanya said:

“The garden’s done more for me than Ive done for it. It’s easy for people to become isolated in their flats, but now so many people come and sit in the garden. It’s been so worth it – it’s brought people together which just didn’t happen before.”
