Plans are in full swing, and work has begun on the Children’s Gardens at the William Hobbayne Community Gardens. This is another phase in enabling residents in the community to access green growing spaces. The small gardens are a stepping stone for local children to begin their gardening journey and start to gain some hands on experience growing their own food. There are three plots which will be divided into mini plots and they have been named Doreen’s, Muriel’s and Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee Garden. Doreen was a much-loved volunteer at the centre for many decades working with Hanwell Neighbourly Care and sadly passed away last year leaving a real gap. Her infectious laugh and sheer dedication to the work at the centre will be missed. Doreen’s neighbours on Studley Grange Road raised funds and contributed the funds to Doreen’s garden. Doreen’s garden is a perfect lasting memory as she loved children and was seen delivering Easter Eggs to the children on her road. Muriel is an active member of the community. Her hard work has not gone unnoticed by the Charity and the hundreds of residents she has reached over many years. The Queen Elizabeth Platinum Jubilee Garden marks the 70th Year of the Queen on the throne and our wonderful volunteers, as they celebrate receiving the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2022. The gardens will be ready for the children in late September at the William Hobbayne Community Gardens.
