Outreach in the Community

June 2019

Paul, who has learning difficulties, lives in the a newly refurbished 'Care in the Community' house, near to the Seven Stiles allotments.

He recently moved from Norwood House on Arkwright Road, which had become unfit
for purpose and has now closed, this had a very old derelict greenhouse where
he enjoyed growing tomatoes.

Paul was concerned that the new accommodation did not have a greenhouse, he has
in the past worked at Woodbank nurseries.

Barry and Marcus assembled a greenhouse for him at the new place, and he is very pleased with the chance to carry on growing tomatoes.
