ALOTMENTS AT WHITEMOSS YOUTHCLUB

This is a blog update on our allotments the new shed arrived on Monday they did a great job in fitting shed up. With the help of probation service making 7 sleepers so that we can grow our own vegetables and fruit.Got a estimate for the fencing to go around the allotments to make it safer just ordered 2 benches ones a 8 seater and the other is 6 seater so kids/parents can sit down watch kids play football/or growing stuff in our allotments. Big thanks to Northwards Housing who funded this project through procurement funding.

This is a blog on our new Gym floor that were getting fitted. Thanks to Awards for all funding of 10,000 pounds as part of there Capital fund. UK flooring are doing the job it will take 4 days to do the job part of the funding is for a Badminton Coach to teach kids and youths how to play better. Plus we will be working with the heart foundation to give Badminton Coaching to people who have had heart attacks. This is because John Biggs our Leader in charge had a heart attack. shot underneath is of the progress of the gym floor  and picture of John Biggs who got the funding well done DaD .

ALLOTMENTS WHITEMOSS YOUTH CLUB

  This is  progress of our allotments that we have got Funding. £3,010  from Northwards Housing(Part of the Your Green Corner Application) in Partnership with The Big Dig)  We’ll be getting 36 railway sleepers to make up 3 raised beds suitable also for wheelchair users, to grow their own fruit and veg.There will be a garden shed to store tools and other garden stuff. There will be other sleeper beds laid, so that other user groups can grow their own fruit and veg. There will be couple of table and benches so anyone can sit down and chill. We are hoping to raise a little more funding to have a high fence erected, so the allotment is more self contained and has its’ own secure area to eliminate vandalism.A Big Thank You to Northwards Housing for there support. In the pictures you can see Probation Service (Unpaid Workers) are building the sleepers for this project.The project is a joint venture between the Youth Club and The Chatterbox Project.The Probation Service are doing a fantastic job, Big Thanks to them All. In the pictures is Graeme Bates who has been an enthusiastic volunteer at Whitemoss Youth Club Our Mr Handy Man, always does great job, this time with his chainsaw . Progress shots. I will update you as and when the allotments progresses. In the picture below is my dad with Chatterbox helping move the sleepers in to the sensory garden March 2013
