On a very miserable cold morning in October, volunteers and Brighton Housing Trust staff got together to give the finishing touches to the new and improved Richardson’s Yard project.
The improvements consist of a solid set of timber gates to the entrance, a new sheltered bike shed, decking on ground floors and a veranda with new mail boxes. The workers from QED who carried out the task did a fantastic job, by using decking timber. The finished look is FAB!
The morning started with a general brush and tidy up of the yard. Jess, our garden project leader and Kaz who volunteers with Jess helped everybody with the planting in the raised beds. Kaz is also a keen photographer and has taken the lovely photos of the day’s event.
After the hard work, we all helped ourselves to some hot and cold drinks, and snacks. It was really a good chance to have lighthearted conversations with everyone. We also had a number of residents walking away with gifts from the raffle. Thanks for the chocs, Wendy – I will gift them on (as if)!
As a Resident of Richardson’s Yard I must say, the transformation is a great rustic look and I am very grateful for all the work and effort putting this together. Thanks everyone who took part apologies for the weather.
