Helpful residents get back to work
After a summer break, residents got back into the swing of things on the Bentinck Estate shaping up another garden. Resident, Asma, got help with setting up a new composting site, digging up a new bed for flowers and fresh hanging baskets - all adding colour and variety.
Asma and other residents signed up to the Elswick Garden Neighbours project have been helping other residents with their gardens, and this is the basis on which the project is based - residents giving their time to others and getting the help back in return.
We're keeping going over the autumn and into the winter, because a little bit of rain didn't hurt anyone!
If you live in either Bentinck or Jubilee Estate or in Elswick, we'd love to hear from you and get you along helping others at our weekly sessions which take place on Monday, 10am-12pm.
