Residents at a Sheltered home in Woodlesford are going to get a head start with their gardening, with funding from the Outer South Housing Advisory Panel.

Rothwell Councillors David Nagle and Karen Bruce are delighted that a gardening club at Midland House can gain access to a patch of land at the rear of the building. The Housing Advisory Panel have provided funds to clear a patch of overgrown plants and create a path, allowing the residents to have access to raised beds and a garden all for themselves.

Councillor David Nagle (Labour, Rothwell) said:
“It is often the little things that can make all the difference. When those of us on the Outer South Housing Advisory Panel heard about this request, we know it would make a real change to people’s lives.

“We know that gardening and social activities can really work to reduce loneliness and keep people active. I can’t wait for the work to be completed.”

Councillor Karen Bruce (Labour, Rothwell) said:
“Locally we are very proud of our gardens and communal areas which is why we have such active and successful In Bloom groups including Rothwell, Woodlesford and Oulton. The real joy of gardening is seeing all the hard work literally flourish and bloom in front of your eyes; I wish the gardening group the best of success.”
