Gardening at Swan House in Enfield
Last week, residents and our Grounds Maintenance Contractor John O'Conner joined us to replant the gardens at Swan House in Enfield.
The John O'Conner Team started early in the morning, breaking up the soil so we could put in over a hundred new plants around Swan House.
Residents and colleagues from our Compliance, Community Development, Caretaking, Enfield Single Housing and Communications Teams worked together to put in the new flower beds, and to make the area greener and more homely for the people living there.

We're very thankful to the residents for all their hard work helping us with the gardening. We're delighted that one of our residents, Alexander, worked so hard that Michael from John O’Conner offered him a full time job! He started on Monday and will be covering much of the gardening in Enfield over the summer holiday.
Alexander worked so hard, he was given a job gardening with John O'Conner.
We're supporting other local gardening projects in London and Hertfordshire with our Irene Barclay Gardens In Bloom Fund.
The fund aims to bring the community together and to inspire the love of gardening across all age groups while beautifying your neighbourhood. We are pleased to offer applicants up to £500 towards this. If you as a community or as an individual would like to take advantage of this bursary, please complete an application form here.
