A member of the Cottam Ash Team lives in a local village and noticed that a once prized garden had become extremely overgrown.
He discovered that one of the male elderly brother/sister occupants had suffered a recent potentially debilitating illness whilst the elderly sister had suffered a disability from her younger years. They were clearly in no position to maintain the garden..... sounds like a job for the Cottam Ash Team.
So on Friday 29 July, six hours and a free lunch later, the garden was trimmed, strimmed and cleared. A certain member of the group volunteered to return to ensure the grass and shrubs remain in a manageable state.
It should be noted that four members of the Team are shift workers and gave up their own time to this cause. As a group bonding and team-building exercise the value from the day was immense. Well done!
