Cruden's ESCALATE in the Community volunteers got their sleeves rolled up to support the Seedley and Langworthy 'In Bloom' group by clearing and tidying a community garden in preparation for the upcoming 'North West In Bloom Competition' 2012.
Cruden has worked in the Seedley and Langworthy area of Salford for many years on a variety of new build, refurbishment and maintenance contracts with clients such as Salford City Council, Great Places Housing Group and Your Housing Group. As part of our commitment to our clients and their communities we are delighted to offer support to community projects where possible.
The 'Seedley and Langworthy In Bloom' initiative is a small community group made up of 17 local residents who volunteer to bring colour and life to the area through communal planting schemes and floral displays.
The residents group share a joint vision to create strength and spirit within isolated communities that have suffered years of decline. Established for 10 years, the group relies on volunteer's time to deliver the floral displays in streets, gated alley ways and communal gardens and to promote fund raising. Year on year the 'In Bloom' activities have grown and created a real pride in the area.
From June onwards each year the 'In Bloom' group transform streets, communal gardens and resident's communal alley ways in to small oasis areas with an impressive display of imagination, planting schemes and dedication putting in over 1000 volunteering hours each year.
Cruden were keen to lend our support through donating funds towards the activities and more importantly our time through engagement our 'ESCALATE in the Community' volunteers.
Our volunteers worked with Doreen Temple at Milford Street Salford to prepare the community garden which will feature in the judging route for the 2012 North West and National In Bloom competition in July and August.
