THE GARDEN BUDDIES

Healthier Fleetwood has brought together partners in the Town to provide some TLC for the gardens of housebound and isolated residents.

 

Volunteers known as the ‘Fleetwood Gardens Buddies’ will be out and about undertaking tasks like mowing lawns and clearing paths. Some of the buddies are taking part after being referred by their GP, as a positive step towards improving their own health and wellbeing.

 

The residents initially benefiting from the project are those who are house bound as result of long-standing health problems while funding for the equipment used has come from the Lancashire County Council's Champion for Parishes initiative and Fleetwood Town Council.

 

The next step is to expand the Garden Buddies beyond the initial group of volunteers and residents involved. Anyone who would like to offer some time to be a ‘buddy’ or to nominate somebody can contact us through the form here or listening@healthierfleetwood.co.uk

As an individual's confidence grows they take more control of their own wellbeing and an active role in the decisions that affect them.
