Residents at our Sheriff Street independent living scheme in Milnrow will get even more enjoyment out of their garden this summer after their outdoor space was transformed thanks to the help of Groundwork Greater Manchester's Green Team and Bagnalls.
In a previously bland and empty part of the garden, the Green Team have planted new fruit trees and installed benches, level access paths, and three brand new raised planters. Residents also have access to a new shed and greenhouse which have been purchased by the tenants and installed by the team. The transformation was aided by a generous donation from RBH contractor Bagnalls through their Community Paintbrush scheme, who were already on site to carry out improvements to the scheme.
The Green Team in Rochdale is a longstanding successful partnership between Groundwork Greater Manchester and RBH, providing young people across the Borough with the opportunity to gain experience and qualifications while helping to transform and enhance our green spaces and communal areas.
