Good Neighbours at Allotments
“It started with a casual conversation with the builders and grew from there,” said Frome Allotment Association Vice- Chair, Mike Darville. “Care Home residents will be able to visit the allotments and enjoy a relaxing hour on our beautiful site. They will be also able to garden if they wish at one of the new raised beds. Gracewell Healthcare has helped with landscaping and resurfacing to allow better access for those with disabilities and contributed £1000 to our funds, which we will use to buy a bench and develop the community area. This community partnership is good for everyone.”
Headteachers Naomi Pauley and Richard Trigg from Vallis and St. Louis schools, attended the cheque presentation with pupil representatives. Both of the schools have plots at the site and are also involved with projects at Rossetti House.
