A local firm has boosted our efforts to create a community garden outside the Nisa shop in Rosslyn Crescent by donating 18 tonnes of soil.
Nearby Travis Perkins stores have pledged to supply the soil which will be used to fill raised beds outside the shop.
HCRA is now seeking volunteers with shovels and wheelbarrows to help out at its big Soil Shift weekend this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday – 18,19, 20 September.
Neighbours will be on site from 10am on Friday and Saturday to ferry the soil from large bags into the lined, wooden containers. The work may continue on Sunday.
If you can help then email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 8427 4121 or 07516 402025.
We also need help from someone with a vehicle to help shift some heavy stone and concrete ballast on Thursday night.
