Today I celebrated the opening of ‘Johnson Place Community Allotment’ in Bilston.
Staff and volunteers from Wolverhampton Homes have been working incredibly hard over the last year to transform a derelict piece of land at Johnson Place, Bilston into an allotment for the local community.
Wolverhampton Homes currently run a staff volunteering project which allows their employees to work on projects and give back to the community. This is just the latest in a growing list of community volunteer projects undertaken by their staff, which have so far seen the creation of two playgrounds, a sensory garden and now an allotment.
The plots have been allocated to members of the local community and I look forward to seeing this project develop.
Well done to all those involved in the transformation of this land and a special well done to Jag Jandu, who served as the project manager.
