Could you be a Coleshill Garden Buddy?

Are you good at gardening? Do you like spending time outdoors? Do you want to give something back to the Coleshill community?

If the answer to any of the above is yes then Volunteer Centre North Warwickshire has just the project for you. ‘Garden Buddy’ is a scheme set up in partnership with North Warwickshire Borough Council. It enables those who are unable to tend to their garden because of their age or because of a disability to call the borough council who will then send out a team of volunteers managed by the Volunteer Centre.

In 2012 the scheme had huge success, tending to 42 gardens across North Warwickshire including a number in Coleshill. The project has been going since April, and we already have a number of gardens that need regular attention, including four in Coleshill, The Volunteer Centre are looking to recruit some new volunteers to the 2013 ‘Garden Buddy’ team for the Coleshill area. If you’re interested in getting involved then please call the Volunteer Centre on 01827 717 073 or email
