Phillimore Court residents enjoy garden enhancements

Bell Group Letchworth, on 5th April with the support of client Clarion Housing, supplied and assembled garden furniture to the residents of Phillimore Court, Radlett.

Rosanna Giarraputo, Community Engagement Coordinator for our Letchworth branch regularly catches up with Debbie Heaney, LiveSmart Scheme Manager and asked what Bell Group could do to make the communal outdoor area a more inviting place for residents to meet and hold summer activities. Debbie met with the residents separately and it was decided that a large garden table and parasol would be ideal to complement the existing benches and chairs.

Vasile Pop, Bell Group Repairs Operative, supplied and assembled the garden table, parasol and base. He, along with Rosanna, presented these gifts to some of the residents and Debbie. They noted how wonderful to see the joy that these gifts brought straight away to the residents. It was matched with the day being a particularly mild and sunny one.

It wasn’t long before the residents and Debbie took pride of place under the parasol at their new table. One of the residents, Margaret said “we don’t have a garden of our own. But, now we’ve got somewhere to sit and be with our friends and socialise.” Another resident, Diana added “it’ll make a big difference and it’s somewhere we can have our BBQ outside. There’s more room for the jugs of Pimm’s as well!”

Wishing all at Phillimore Court many happy, sunny days!
