Young Sutton gardeners dig in to help OAPs

Have your say

Green-fingered young volunteers are helping elderly tenants keep their gardens spick and span and learn valuable skills.

Ashfield Homes has officially re-launched its Spade Aid project to enhance the look of Ashfield estates, supporting elderly and vulnerable tenants who have no other help available.

Students from the Sutton Community Academy, teachers and an employee from the housing organisation attend the gardens with the overall aim of giving the gardens a one-off tidy-up by taking part in pruning shrubs, removing old plants, digging over borders, raking and weeding.
