DELIGHTED residents at a sheltered housing scheme in Prescot are enjoying a brand new garden.

Knowsley Housing Trust’s (KHT) South Avenue supported housing scheme now has vegetable plots and raised beds for residents to tend to.

The transformation was carried out by non-profit social enterprise Prescot Oasis – which worked closely with residents after picking up a grant from KHT.

Green-fingered members of the Four Seasons Residents’ Association, who won Resident Association of the Year at KHT’s Community Impact Awards last year, recently helped local schoolchildren to make hanging baskets for the garden too.

Terry Bonner, from KHT, said: “Residents take great pride in their community spaces. The new garden will be a place to relax and will help to keep people active.”
