Family fun at the Fundraiser!

What a wonderful time we all had on Sunday 28th October, raising £580 for Hedgehog Rescue Blackpool. Personally, I am not a huge fan of cut flowers, but I do love to see the tables in our little Community Centre full of colour, inviting people to come in and enjoy a hearty meal, good entertainment, and hopefully leave with a prize from the raffle. So instead of vases of flowers, I made vases of windmills. Yes, windmills. And, yes, I ...

Colourful Community Spirit!

Talented resident Karen Taylor has been hard at work transforming an area of the communal space at Cherry Tree Gardens. From using recycled materials, such as an old roller blind to make the canopy, to building the decking from donated wood, Karen has really put her heart and soul into the project which benefits local residents. She’s pictured here with neighbours Jason and Ellen enjoying the beautiful surroundings. If you’ve been working hard to improve or maintain the communal space ...
