Tulse Hill community garden restored by volunteers
Galliford Try are working on new buildings in Lambeth and have organised volunteering days including a community meadow clear-up in Luton, helping out in a foodbank in Woking – and making a garden in Lambeth safe for the community.
Hardworking volunteers from builders Galliford Try worked with Lambeth residents and Lambeth-based social Enterprise Urban Growth to give the ‘Children’s Garden’ on Tulse Hill Estate a makeover to improve it as a community asset.
Making the garden safe again for children
Together, they replaced unsafe paths and revamped the community garden to make it safe for another 10 years of planting.
“We have a local office in Brixton and wanted to engage with the local community by getting involved in a worthwhile project. Volunteering is a great way for the employees of Galliford Try: Building Southern to make a positive impact in the communities where we work. We also want employees to be able to develop as individuals through these community projects.
“The team from the day all felt a huge sense of satisfaction from the entire day and were able to take ownership, along with Urban Growth, of the development of the Children’s Garden, and creating a safe and enjoyable space for the residents.”
“Please invite us back to Lambeth”
Galliford Try Building Southern Regional Technical Director, Marcus Hudson said:
“I certainly feel that it was a worthwhile day and walked away with a sense of satisfaction and appreciated the team’s hard work and enthusiasm for the tasks. We absolutely would love to get involved in another project in Lambeth, and have asked Urban Growth to keep us updated with any projects coming up in the new year.”
