A team of volunteers from HCRA and Harrow Central Mosque have started work to repair the much-loved community garden after it was vandalised last year.
Scores of helpers including many members of the mosque’s youth group turned out to help with weeding, watering and spreading tons of compost and mulch.
The garden at the corner of Rosslyn Crescent and Station Road was vandalised in December last year.
Since then HCRA has successfully applied for a £600 grant for Harrow to help pay for new plants and other improvements.
Harrow Central Mosque has also donated £100 to the garden restoration fund.
However, at least £500 is still needed to help restore the garden to its former glory and HCRA members are currently seeking funding.
The event on Saturday, February 22, was the first phase of a major project to bring the garden back to life.
Volunteers also helped weed and plant up the flowerbed at the mosque at the same time.
HCRA’s gardening group will be organising similar events in the near future to repaint the garden beds, plant bulbs and new plants and install new signage.
