Ground Control Team with Dales Housing in Community Planting Project
Ground Control recently teamed up with Dales Housing and local school children to complete a community planting project at Shawcroft. Tenants and residents from around the estate were invited to join, working with the young members of the ECO Council from local Parkside Junior School.
Ground Control’s Operations Manager, Simon Smith, and Contracts Supervisor, John Fuller, were on hand to demonstrate soft landscaping techniques, and throughout the morning, assisted the children in planting, mulching and watering a variety of small evergreen shrubs.
Parkside Junior School’s ECO Council has been working hard to make their school and community more eco-friendly. Working closely with Dales Housing, Ground Control has been able to play a huge part in teaching the younger generation the importance of planting and maintaining green spaces in the community to create more enjoyable neighbourhoods for all.
