June update

Words: Amy on June 21, 2021
This month the hotels for homeless people on the street are now closed as temporary accommodation. We are currently seeing more homeless people on the streets and are anticipating more too. We have also seen an increase in the use of our shower facilities which homeless people can use –  often we offer a hot meal after their shower made by our resident cooks.
Together, We Can Make a Difference.
Thank you

Plants Wanted – Putting Green in the Picture

One of our newest residents has ‘green fingers’ so gardening is taking the lime light this month. It is definitely brightening up the space. We have a new planting area including new salad crops, and some new climber plants against the micro flats.

We could use your help if have some old shoes lying around. They can be transformed into quirky flower pots!
