Greenstead community garden gets the "Make a Difference" treatment
10:06am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
VOLUNTEERS and council officers joined forces to give a Greenstead garden a sprucing up.
The Magnolia Drive community garden was recently reclaimed by residents with the help of Colchester Borough Homes funding after it had been left to decay.
Last week, officers from Colchester Borough Homes and Colchester Council joined forces with local tenants and volunteers from GO4 Enterprises to take part in a “Make a Difference” day in the area.
As well as a general tidy up of the area, contractors replaced some tired-looking fencing with new agricultural-style metal railings.
Everyone also mucked in to dig out a new border area and plant some new shrubs and plants.
