Fabulous Team from Lloyds Stockbroking Gardening at Shine.
A late November day is not always the best for gardening. Will it rain? Snow? will the ground freeze? or will it be a beautiful sunny day? Well the day that the team came we were very lucky it was actually a lovely sunny day! It was very cold but this didn’t put anyone off. So we all wrapped up warm and got out there in the garden.
Gardening has never been one of my strengths but I have to say the Lloyds Stockbroking team were fantastic! There are not many houses with gardens in our community and we wanted to create some lovely and tidy space that looks good around our building. The space was there however I’m ashamed to say alittle neglected. Therefore when the Lloyds Stockbroking team offered to come and help us with weeding and digging etc it was fantastic!
There was so much weeding to do around the building and they nailed it in just one day! The work the team did was very impressive. It would have taken one gardener weeks to get it all done. They also built a flower bed. Alot of sawing and pure hard work to create the edge with planks and then filling the bed with around 10 tonnes of soil.
Our skip was filled with loads of weeds, dead trees and all sorts from around the garden at the end of the day. It’s lovely to see the garden so tidy and we now promise to keep it that way!
We are looking for someone from the community to help us with the garden. Lloyds have given us a great start. If you know anyone who wants to do some gardening please get intouch. we would love to hear from you.
Come and visit us and see what a great job the team did. Thanks once again to the great guys from Lloyds Stockbroking for all their help!
If you know of anyone or any companies that like to help with volunteering we have alot of projects that you can help us with so please get intouch. Thank you.
