Meadowhall staff volunteer at Tinsley Community Allotment for Community Week

Community Week at Meadowhall launched Monday 19th of June to give the centre’s staff a week to support local community organisations each day of the week, and the chance for employees to get together and connect.

Taken over by a new team in 2016, the Tinsley Community Allotment project, partly funded by Meadowhall, allows local children to grow their own fruit and vegetables. The Meadowhall team regularly offers their services to the Allotment, and this month, 13 members of Meadowhall staff helped paint flower beds, plant new starters, and general maintenance, as well as build a new mini-chefs mud kitchen!

“It’s always a great day to get your hands dirty, team build with colleagues and undergo some well-needed garden therapy, all whilst knowing it’s contributing to the local community,” said Darren Pearce, Centre Director at Meadowhall.”

The Meadowhall team will be heading back to the Tinsley Community Allotment in October to prepare the garden for the winter season.
