BeCHaR and Mears Construction have teamed up and have been breaking their backs to produce a new Community Garden.
The project received a very generous donation of £2,000.00 from Margaret Davey (Ex.Cllr of Castle Ward – Bedford). These funds, along with the hard work from BeCHaR Guests, BeCHaR Volunteers, BeCHaR Staff and Mears Construction Employees; we have made an amazing Community Garden for the benefit of many for years to come.
The new Community Garden will allow Guests that attend The Prebend Day Centre an opportunity to breathe in some fresh air, have a change of scenery, drink lots of Tea and Coffee while chatting and grow fruit/vegetables/ herbs/spices. We will then be holding cookery classes within the canteen at The Prebend Day Centre, teaching individuals how to cook healthy, nutritious food from the product grown from the Community Garden. A truly holistic approach to help facilitate a positive change.
We would like to thank (in no particular order); Margaret Davey – Ex.Cllr Castle Ward Bedford, Wendy Ludman – Neighborhood Support Officer, Michelle Brophy – Mears Customer and Community Manager, Chris and Team – Mears, Clive & Nigel – Volunteers, Mel, Wayne & Smuddge – Guests, and Tony – BeCHaR.
We are pleased to announce the official launch took place on Friday 9th September 2011.
