Best wishes for Christmas

I hope that everyone has a peaceful and safe Christmas.

Yesterday Malcolm and I spent a couple of hours working in the garden at the back of Hanford Close. As some of you will remember this is one of our on going SGRA projects; to turn a dark and unpromising patch of land into a garden for the benefit of the residents , a number of who are elderly or disabled. So far we have planted about 400 bulbs and cleared various areas for future planting and are being supported by a number of the residents, who have been inspired to do their own gardening. We are grateful for the support too of the Wandsworth Big Society Fund and the Council.
