Norwich Norse Environmental joins volunteers to transform city Park

August 2018

Norwich Norse Environmental Team Leader Andy Lambert and Chargehand Michael Ottaway recently joined volunteers to help transform a forgotten part of Eaton Park in Norwich.

 

The two joined pupils from The Clare School and representatives from the Friends of Eaton Park, the Royal Horticultural Society and Eaton Park Cafe over two days to create two raised herb beds in the cafe’s garden.

 

Chairman of the Friends of Eaton Park Helen Mitchell said that the project came about as part of the RHS’ Greening Grey Britain campaign; “None of Eaton Park is actually grey but the project is also interested in intergenerational projects,” she said. “We have got a lot of elderly people in the friends and we have a lot of links with The Clare School, so we thought why not do something with them and the area behind the cafe.”

 

Hannah Leys, Operations Dirctor at Norwich Norse Environmental said, “We were delighted to help with this project, which brought together people young and old in a very worthwhile delevopment of a part of the Park.”
