VOLUNTEERS from Willmott Dixon's Burton branch have put their green fingers to work on a number of community garden projects, in partnership with Trent & Dove Housing.

Eight volunteers worked with Trent & Dove's project coordinator Aaron Stringer on two projects across six days. The projects have culminated in the donation of a £1,650 wooden greenhouse for tenants in Warwick Street to grow their own fruit and vegetables. The projects have allowed volunteers, including office staff and trade operatives, to discover their inner Titchmarsh, engaging in all manner of green activities, ranging from planting flowers and mowing lawns, to painting bird boxes and all round general garden maintenance.

Willmott Dixon Partnerships, which has recently celebrated 10 years of work with Trent & Dove is currently working to repair and maintain 5,700 homes in the East Staffordshire and South Derbyshire areas.
