The kitchen looks fantastic, Thank you, and the garden is looking Autumn ready!

The NCS team were looking for a DIY SOS type project to do in the town and when we showed them our garden and explained what we were hoping to do with it they kindly agreed to help. The team of 15 young people and 2 youth workers had just a few days to plan the project and a week to deliver it and they did all the planning, organising and hard work (even in a heat wave) themselves. They also donated plants, toys, trellis, paint and tools to the value of £450, which we are extremely grateful for.
