Waterside Allotment Volunteer Day

Osborne teams joined forces to help the Waterside Centre transform their new allotment.

The Waterside Centre provides support for local residents with additional needs and has been running for 29 years. The Centre delivers social, educational and training opportunities for adults with learning disabilities.

Working with volunteers and our team members, we transformed the allotment to make it fit for purpose in a number of ways; clearing old weeds, re-establishing the vegetable beds by using donated scaffolding boards and building a shed donated by the Osborne team.

The Centre is planning on using the allotment to grow produce which will be sold in their “Watershed Shop”. Service users will be encouraged to maintain the allotment, promoting the benefits of staying active.

Waterside commented, “Everyone at the Waterside Centre is so thankful for all that Osborne does to support our work. Every time we come up with a big idea, they are right there with us, supporting us with practical help to make it become a reality. The ground works that have been done by Osborne would have taken us months! Thank you Osborne!”

Well done to everyone who volunteered on the day.
