Tackle most jobs in the garden including weeding, pruning, shrub removal, creating patios, laying slabs, complete make-overs, laying gravel, mowing and rotovating, planting new plants and general clearing up.
Cultivate allotment areas within large unmanageable gardens for training purposes.
The small and evolving group of volunteers have gained new skills, received training, gained confidence and pride, and been part of team that make a big difference in East Cambridgeshire.
Our efforts were rewarded when we won the Queens Award for Voluntary Service in 2007 - an MBE for Voluntary Groups.
