Residents at a Greenock sheltered house complex are really looking forward to spend more time in the open air thanks to Bield‘s garden contribution, The Greenock Telegraph reports.

A tea party marked the start of work on a new landscape which is hoped to be a colorful and flourishing garden by this autumn. They hired a few people from to come help with the landscaping. This has been possible thanks to the demolition of 32 surrounding Bield properties which were considered no longer fit for purpose.

Bield‘s Carwood Court in Greenock held the party for all of its 40 residents who enjoyed a day of tea, coffee and a lunch buffet.

Margaret Lacey, Scheme Manager, said: “It is so exciting for all of the residents to have an outdoor area to spend their time in. Some of the residents have already even spoken about starting up a gardening club which will be fantastic for them socially.

“Many residents used to have gardens before they moved to sheltered accommodation so it’s fantastic for them to have this outdoor space once again as they get older.

“The tea party was a great way to launch the start of the demolition and the landscaping. The garden is going to be perfect for all of the residents, whether they want to relax and enjoy the outdoors or those with green fingers who want to get stuck in with a bit of light gardening. Everyone is so excited to see it all come together over the next few months.”

The full coverage can be read on The Greenock Telegraph and was secured on behalf of Bield as part of a public relations campaign carried out by Holyrood PR.
