Ground Control join green-fingered residents to improve gardens

Sovereign Housing Association. Pembridge House, Fordingbridge. Pembridge Garden estate improvements. Sovereign staff and Ground Control staff clear the over grown flower beds. (L-R): Amanda Devine-Bowden (Sovereign), Marianna Pentek (Ground Control), Abi Travers (Sovereign) and Jim Edwards from Ground Control.Ground Control has been supporting client, Sovereign Housing, and residents at Pembridge House to set up a small gardening club to improve their communal garden.

Operations Manager, Jim Edwards and Contract Manager, Marianna Pentek spent a day on site with residents clearing and pruning overgrown bushes, clearing pathways and giving the grass its winter cut.

Abigail Travers, Sovereign’s Housing Services Manager (Support Housing) said: “This day was a great success, not only in returning the grounds to their former glory, but also in bringing residents together with a common interest in gardening. Our Independent Living Service aims to help residents who may otherwise be socially isolated by helping to facilitate opportunities to engage with them in a positive way to help improve their quality of life.”

Jim Edwards said: “When we started the Hampshire contract in March this year Pembridge House was one of the first schemes I visited and we could see years of neglect in what is a very nice garden.

“Working with Amanda Devine-Bowden from Sovereign we put together a works party to get stuck in. Enjoying the sunny weather and working with great people the day went quickly. The area is looking so much better, the residents genuinely appreciated the hard work and end result.”
