Volunteers needed to help make our estates bloom

Bulb planting

We’re launching our first ever estate wide planting project – and we’re looking for green fingered volunteers to plant over 1,000 bulbs across our estates.

Whatever your age, background or gardening prowess, all residents are welcome to dig in and help us to make our estates an even better place to live. Community is at the heart of everything we do, so creating beautiful, green spaces is just one of the many ways we can celebrate our homes and create places everyone can enjoy.

Urban Growth Learning Gardens, an environmental social enterprise, and contractors Continental Landscapes, will be joining housing services in planting bulbs and flowers across our estates. Come spring 2020, the seeds we plant now will create a rainbow of colour for the community to enjoy.

The two-hour gardening events will take place across estates in October - November 2019. They will be on Wednesdays  when the Westminster on Wheels mobile housing  bus is on the estate as well as weekends to ensure everyone can get involved.

To sign up on this date or find out more, please contact Ian Merriman, Resident Engagement Team Leader, on housing.enquiries@westminster.gov.uk or 0800 358 3783 (freephone).
