Equipment and shed donated to gardening club


A garden club in PENARTH recently received a whole range of new equipment.

JG Hale Construction, in partnership with Wales and West Housing, donated the equipment to the club.

The club are made up of residents of a housing project in Salisbury Close and have approached the local community development team to develop a community garden.

It has been running for 10 years.

JG Hale Construction donated a shed and gardening equipment, planters and topsoil and another of Wales and West Housing’s regular contractors, Mike Guthrie Building Solutions, donated labor to install the shed.

Jenny, a member of the Penarth Garden Club, said: “During the lockdown it really helped me.

“I was on furlough and didn’t work for three months and I always used to get up and go to work.

“So I was able to spend my free time in the garden. I would go out and plant seeds and watch them grow, that really helped me.

“Gardening brought us together.

“Once people realize the garden is there for everyone, they come here and sit and watch the birds or give cuttings and plants. I’ve met a lot of new people.”

David Harrhy, managing director of JG Hale Construction, said: “Since lockdown, we have reassessed and adapted our community benefits to support projects that encourage community cohesion and wellbeing through outdoor activities.

“We are delighted to have worked with our client WWH to donate new planters, land and a shed to the residents of Salisbury Close to help the Residents Garden Club.”
