September 2018: New Staff

We are pleased to welcome on board Chris, who started mid-August and is responsible for our outdoor and plant work.  He stepped into the role as though he had always been doing it, and his gardening expertise as well as his caring approach are doubly welcome.

We also welcome Erba who started from October as our Operations Manager.  She will be working closely with Ali and our core staff team to ensure the smooth running and healthy development of the project.



September 28th 2018: A Special Birthday!

Tinker the cat has just celebrated his 15th birthday (105 in human equivalent!)  He is still a very active cat and a pretty regular member of the gardening team.


August 31st 2018: A Sad Farewell

We said a sad farewell to one of our project managers, Liz Dobb, at the end of August.  Liz and her husband Roy have moved back up north to Alnwick for their retirement.  Liz has been with the project for 24 years, performing many different roles as it has evolved, and will continue to be much missed by staff and clients alike.


May 26-28th 2018: St Dunstan Flower Festival

We were pleased to take part in St Dunstan's Flower Festival earlier this year.

We quickly rolled up our sleeves and got dug in, helping to erecting marquees and working on perfecting our window display.

Here are just some of the images from the day.



June 2017: Waitrose Tokens - Thank You

Thank you to everyone who supported us.  We raised over £300!!


Hospital Advertising

Look out for our advertisement on the Bedford Hospital notice boards.  It should be there for the forseeable future, so why not point it out to friends who may be in need of our services.
