Gloucester City Homes (GCH) is thrilled to have carried out its first Community Impact Day in 2021 at Robinswood Primary School in Matson. The project focused on tidying and bringing the allotment area back to life following the Pandemic which had left the area unloved and overgrown.

A team of 12 GCH and Lovell staff carried out the work on Thursday 29th July and completed a big tidy of the area including rebuilding planters, building and painting a new shed, cutting hedges, planting and tidying in the memorial garden.

Bob Allen, Friend of Robinswood School said “A massive thank you to everyone involved in yesterday’s transformation of the Robinswood garden project. I was amazed this morning when I looked at the hard work. It has made such a difference and will get so many more children involved in gardening next term. A great team of people from GCH.”

Chelsea Milne, Senior Scheduling Coordinator oversaw the project and adds “It was great to finally get back into the community to make a real visible difference. The team worked really hard and we hope that the pupils enjoy using the area once again. A big thanks to our contractor Lovell for donating supplies and helping out on the day.”

GCH has plans to hold a host of other community impact projects over the summer and into early September. This will include gardening and outdoor work in Kingsholm, The Lampreys, Heron School, Widden School, The Venture and James Hopkins Trust.
