Community gardeners take over empty plot on Lakehouse Estate


A formerly empty garden plot at the junction of Blake Hall Road and Blake Hall Crescent has been taken over by a group of community gardeners.

“After much negotiation and paperwork, the plot was handed over to us by Simon Stodel, Neighbourhood Engagement and Education Officer at Redbridge Council. On 20 April, 13 volunteers met at the site. We prepared the area, sowed wild flower seeds provided by the council and planted a variety of plants,” said Rosemarie Coffey from the Lakehouse Estate and AHS Gardeners.
